“Eco-Archive” – Intersection for the Arts
San Francisco, CAAn excerpt from the wall text next to the piece:
“…she creates sculptures with audio material (speakers, wires, amplifiers) not just for their sonic capabilities, but also for their sculptural properties. Emanating deep rhythmic bass tones, moving around the speakers at different speeds during different times, Albaitis’ work references the global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon known as Schumann resonances, the natural frequency of Earth that is similar in wavelength to the alpha rhythms of mammalian brainwaves.
She posits a holistic understanding of our relationship to nature on the biological and physical level.”
