A Little Piece of String (2018)

Inspired by Gertrude Stein’s 1914 literary text, Tender Buttons, which performs everyday objects to shift the stability of form and meaning, my approach is sonic: signal is transferred to everyday materials and objects to produce kinetic-sonic actions and interactions with recurrence. A multi-channel sound installation unfolds as an evolving composition of spatialized sound using a serial algorithm for signal generation, pick-up mics for amplification, and delay as output. Transforming the same into difference guides the listener through the space of the gallery. Solo Exhibition, Remai Modern, Saskatoon.
