Incident Reflection - 2010
In this installation the sound of escaping air is beamed onto a deflated mylar balloon from a parabolic dish mounted on the ceiling. When a visitor first enters the installation, the sound is perceived as emanating from the balloon. However, as one makes their way through the space, this is disrupted and the sound's source becomes somewhat ambiguous. In this manner, this work further explores the concept of "schizophonia" - the dislocation of a sound from its source. This term was originally coined by R.M Schafer to convey the sense of aberration, confusion, and nervous anxiety imparted by electroacoustic reproduction.
