Abstract

Form, writes Nicholas Bourriaud, is ‘structural unity imitating a world.’ I have responded to this idea with Three Spaces in Mid-Air, which is designed as a continuous work in three discrete sections. Each explores the idea of spectral space through interaction and coalescence of sonic strata, as three dimensional objects ‘suspended’ before the listener. The work’s three sections also address the compression of form, each aiming to embody the atmosphere of a self-contained ‘world’—evoking implications of direction, tension and release while balancing states of stasis and motion.

Three Spaces in Mid-Air was premiered at the Projection Room, Brussels, 21 June 2017.
