Lyre, 8' x 8' x 8', 2013

The sound of things bears a spiritual presence, we react in profound ways to sounds that barely register in the conscious mind. I want to make pieces that allow the user to interact with moving images through sensitive vibrations of sound. In me this old zither called up age, coldness and darkness. It called to me about a lifelong struggle with the dark. Sound controls the speed of motion. I start with a sound and create a piece around it.
