I have used sound installation and also created various sound sculptures that emulate alternate sounds, much like instruments. Each piece in my body of work aims to invite the audience to interact with the artworks as instruments, then completing the installations by adding the different elements needed to complete the sounds.The way sound is able to be interpreted so differently by various artists and to then be translated into various mediums, is of major interest to me and becomes important because of this variety, that I then involve audience interaction.This year has been a major shift in the way we work and communicate, and then changing how we are able to adapt. I think that this exhibition and body of work is able to reflect on that as it changes the association we have with material objects and with the sounds that they too can produce.
The main purpose of this exhibition is to bring awareness to how and what we choose to contribute towards the spaces and others around us. I have used abandoned materials that once fulfilled a purpose and transformed them into interactive sound sculptures.Repurposing these objects brings into question their relevance after serving their desired function, and by making the audience aware of their new found purpose, how we change our actions towards them.
Sound is a device that we use on a daily basis, and by making people aware of the sounds that they are contributing, how does this change the way we choose to create and interact with sound but alternativley also then listen for it.These objects help me translate the meaning of contribution we present amongst ourselves and allow for what we have forgotten to present itself to us once again.
