About This Project

Timequake was a group exhibition in May 2015, part of the Vonnegut Arts Festival – curated and marketed by the artists themselves. Juxtaposing the historic features of St. Mary’s Guildhall, a live, interactive sound installation, Recital, was exhibited in the pitch black space. By amplifying the sounds of everyday objects with contact microphones, the audience is integral to an ongoing performance of noise and sound-reactive light.

Upstairs in the group exhibition, a silent projection acts as a counterpart to the sound, a multitute of repeating patterns flicker and grow over ten minutes of video. Curated in relation to other mechanical, time-related pieces – the noises from other work in the exhibition provide the soundtrack for the silent film.
