Terri Chiao and Adam Frezza used footage taken during daytime meditations in and around the pavilion to project onto the walls of the structure at night. The footage draws attention to natural sunlight “projections” through the forest canopy.
Brian House set up a four-channel sound system projecting out from the structure and into the surrounding territory. He sent pulses into each speaker whose rate was determined by the angle above the horizon of four celestial bodies (sun, moon, uranus, saturn). The pitches of the pulses were generated via an algorithm mimicking Arvo Pärt’s tintinnabuli method of voice layering. Finally, the timbre and texture of the sound came from him as he meditated while maintaining a note on a melodica for the duration of the piece. In the resulting performance, his breathing and the transit of celestial spheres were implicated in the landscape as the audience wandered nearby. Here to Listen. Jonathan Sims created digital images to accompany the performance (animated with the technical assistance of Gene Kogan). Jonathan exhibited a new crop of asemic glyphs and linear scripts arrayed with new and abstract imagery.
