Sculptures: 4 continues a series of artistic explorations that are concerned with the vitality of sound, its physical presence, the power it has to affect other objects and our expectations surrounding of it. Sculptures: 4 re-purposes the speaker from a sonic transmission device to a sculptural, visual object by using sound waves to generate visual movement and simultaneously power LED lights. Sculptures: 4 seeks to re-examine our relationship to the audible and re-think sound as a physical and conceptual property as well as an audible one. The work subverts the materials in order to reveal and make sensory the transition of energy, capturing a moment of potentiality that shows an instantaneous conversion between media.

Sculpture #2 is a take on Cascone’s concept of The Aesthetics of Failure. A kinetic sculpture is created by placing a disc man playing looped audio inside a speaker. The audio creates movement in the speaker which in turn causes the discman to glitch and skip, creating a feedback loop in which the audio first generates movement and subsequently destroys itself.

Sculpture #1 is a large scale performance-installation that employs LED lights and a grid of speakers to create a kinetic sound and light sculpture. LED lights are placed inside an array of speakers, which are fed inaudible frequencies, glitches and drawn waveforms in a work that is composed to highlight both the percussive sound of the lights moving inside the speakers and the multitude of visual patterns that those lights create.
