Unity and Dualities/ Michael Ashley seeds sounds


On the heels of the Creative Cities Conference, Michael Ashley creates two audio-visual installations.

This exhibition deals with vibration, its expression as sound, the manifestation of sound as language and the translation of language from an aural to a visual experience. The interactive installation “Pranava” plays with the Eastern idea of the seed sound that gives rise to all creation. “Pranava” invites the viewer to participate in the creative act by manipulating the sound/vibration generated by a custom computer program and view the results on TV. The second installation, “Dualities”, presents various oppositions within the context of human language. First is the contrast between the spoken and written alphabet, the aural and visual experience of language. Next are distinctions between female and male and between various languages: French, English, Arabic and Hebrew. “Dualities” is composed of eight audio and two video tracks controlled by customized software that runs the 10 minute cycle in an endless loop.

Come and vibrate, interact with the exhibit and the artist!

Blink is one of the few spaces where visitors can speak with the artist about their work.

Opening reception: Thursday 6-9 PM

weekend hours Friday Saturday Sunday, 12-5
