Kinetic Sculpture > Resonant Objects

Untitled (Resonant Objects) is a mixed-media sculpture featuring 50 tiny contact speakers suspended over a pile of discarded objects: glass, plastic, and metal cans, bottles, and boxes. The speakers play 22 different loops of sounds which I recorded while playing with the objects. Because the speakers lack speaker cones, they are almost silent. However, guests are invited to select an object and place it against a speaker: instantly the object becomes a speaker and vibrates with sound. The multiple channels allow guests to "play" the piece like an instrument, adding and subtracting sounds at will.
