My work explores systems in drawing, painting, installation, sound, and animation.
The images shown are from a long term drawing project entitled “The Library of Abstract Sound” from 2009. It is a multi-media installation of two hundred drawings that are enclosed in a room installed on shelves. Each drawing acts as a score and there is a one to three minute long audio piece that accompanies each piece. The audio was created through a program that was written for this project that scans the piece and translates it into sound. The installation also includes a colored wall, mahogany shelves, different frames for each drawing, and a rug all inspired by early modernist interior design. The second room of the installation reminiscent of a modernist museum includes glass mobiles, and large drawings and acts as a contemporary homage to the tradition of abstraction and sound such as Kandinsky, and to the overall sensibility of that time.
