The installation and book, Hear and There, was the result of an extended residency at Volatile Parts in Atlanta, Ga. The work includes ambient recordings broadcast on FM radios, a structure of provisional architecture, photography, maps, and writing. While the installation is built on an interrogation of our sense of architecture as a container of space, it also questions our essential understanding of the threshold between something and nothing.
At what point does a structure become a space or a theoretical framework become more than a commentary on forces and social relations of everyday life? Using the domestic space of the house as a backdrop to work through these questions, Hear and There inverts the assumed spacial relationships of the interior and exterior of the house through sound recordings made on site that confuse our notion of time and space. The subtle divide between the place of the house and the space of the installation challenges our notion of each.
