i credit those around me for guiding about what not to do.  everything else comes from experimentation.

fishing for resonance | article (2006) | video (2008)

Watch a video that documents the process of fishing for resonances i learned from Russell Frehling. I use this process to find exact resonances for all my installations, and in the particular case of this video, to collect acoustical information for the design of the exhibition SOUND at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach … watch video …

guinea pig

I think of the artistic experimental method I use in my work with sound as a form of feedback based on intuition. By that I mean: When I poke the world hoping for something to happen, if it does happen, I learn my hypothesis may be correct. I feel more connected. If it doesn’t, then I adjust my poke until it does or until I find out the world doesn’t work anything like I am imagining and my hypothesis is incorrect. I then feel disconnected.

Obviously, this process requires defining myself—as inspired by R. Buckminster Fuller—the guinea pig of my own experiment, that sets in motion a form of attentive play more closely related to art than to rigorous science.
