The Dublin Science Gallery’s touring exhibition ILLUSION will open in Charlotte, North Carolina on 3rd February. The exhibition features my installation Significant Birds, in which spoken word (a reading from Helmholtz) is disassembled into individual partials presented on little speakers in bird cages. The exhibition also includes a version of Madi Boyd’s The Point of Perception, for which I designed the sound (and which can currently also be seen in the Gerald Moore Gallery in Eltham).
The exhibition at the Discovery Place will be on until May 10th and follows a long run at the Reuben Fleet Science centre in San Diego. All pieces in the exhibition focus on forms of illusion, playing with and interrogating our perception. There is more about Significant Birds here.
