Out and In

2005

‘Gigantic’ The Soap Factory
Minneapolis, MN

The study of space and environments – what separates this from that. I went throughout the exhibition space and made recordings of the space itself; doors clanking, floors creaking, phones ringing… I then pumped those sounds through speakers planted within the ceiling. In essence, the sounds of the building where emanating in a more exaggerated way around the large ‘flesh tube’ that stood in the middle of the space.

The noises within the ‘flesh tube’ were recordings of bodily noises; stomach growls, burps, the sound of eating…


One would walk around the space, then walk into the ‘flesh tube’ – the contrast of the sonic environments created visceral reactions with the people who experienced the piece…
