Portals (date n.a)
Glass, sound, electronics (variable dimensions)
Up to thirty globes are disbursed throughout the gallery in clusters of three.
Each globe contains a speaker and a led light. The speakers emit sounds,
bouncing off of the glass’s surface and the leds light up in response.
As each pod broadcats a different sound, each gathered from the everyday
lives of collaborators, thirty viewers could be simultaneously having thirty
different auditory experiences from the lives of thirty collaborators.
The piece is controlled by a PC with multiple sound cards running software
that feeds sounds to the spheres.
