Ensuing the toss a large piece of ice into the frozen waters of the Mississippi River, I envisage my physical relationship with sound and negative space. Overwhelmed by the booming echo of the icy explosion, its subsequent sounding the negative space of the river valley, my experience of this void as positive space was triggered.
The politics of negative space and negative experience--or that which I am unable to perceive acting upon my body at any given moment--illuminate the exchanges between my body, the surrounding environment, and other bodies. Understanding the permeability of my body dissolves borders, awareness of its thresholds unravel assumed truths.
Acknowledging my ineptitude to produce objective fact, I work with devices used to capture and record—the mechanical eye and the mechanical ear—producing visual and aural work that is otherwise un[der]perceived by the human body.
