One of my favorite things about visiting galleries the morning after a big night is how the space feels so quiet yet there is a lingering excitement about the work. This show is much cooler than it looks, and it looks pretty cool.
The work at the top converted sound into light, you pushed a button, record yourself saying something, (anything) and it added your words to the beginning of 288 recorded voices. It sounded, as expected, like an ever increasing conversation. The light was just a great way to visualize sound. What does sound look like? I can't say, but this was a great experiment. The other contraption was a fancy machine that pushed air into a paper bag. It was quiet in the gallery, so the subtle crumpling sounded loud and strange - I can't imagine I would have had the same experience on opening night. Great call on the gray walls, white becomes so exhausting.
