Sound installation: mirrors, analog timers, strobe lights, photo sensor
A soundtrack recorded by driving across the desert at various speeds with a microphone out the window.
With a varying tempo of flashes depending on the hour, blinding strobe lights activate the gated soundtrack inside of a pitch-black mirrored room, creating the illusion of a large booming drum. The presence of viewers’ bodies in the reflective space affects the rhythm of the beat, creating sonic and visual syncopations and palpitations. Still Life No. 1 measures of the fluctuations of human time by emitting flashes from a fast-moving field recording of a vast desert.
