Sensoria presents two new immersive installations, each integrating light
and sound to transform the gallery space, concentrating on the visitor¹s
sensory perceptions within the specific physicality of a new environment.
Each work will in its own way conflate and link different sensory
experiences: vision, hearing, and feedback to physical movement.
The exhibition will feature the interactive installation Hidden Spaces, by
artist/architect Iole Alessandrini, programmer/composer Ben McAllister and
engineer Ed Mannery. In this work, lasers create planes that form flat
spatial fields. Through the use of video tracking and computerized sound,
the planes are Œaudio-visualized¹: people explore, with their own movements,
the spaces hidden within the planes of light by triggering sounds made as
they intersect these planes.
Also featured is Free Dissociation‹a new collaborative work by Thom Heileson
and Wyndel Hunt‹a three-channel, stereo audio projection installation
enveloping the gallery visitor in a textural, audio-visual tapestry that
pairs Heileson¹s animated visual imagery with Hunt¹s similarly abstract
sound composition. The artists exploit perceived parallels in their
work‹which speak in corresponding emotive tones but in different sensory
media‹to build an immersive perceptual ground delineated by intrinsically
linked strata of light and sound.
Hidden Spaces is supported in part by the Mayor¹s Office of Arts & Cultural
This presentation of Free Dissociation is made possible with technical
support from Hawthorne Stereo.
