Indepth Arts News:

"Slowscan Soundwave (III) & The Telaesthetic Finger"
2005-10-12 until 2005-11-26
Location One
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Location One continues its Fall 2005 season with an exhibition in two parts featuring a large-scale interactive installation in the main gallery, and a collection of smaller sound pieces in the project room - Slowscan Soundwave (III) & The Telaesthetic Finger. Location One is a not-for-profit organization devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology.

** Slowscan Soundwave (III) ** is an immense, sound-sensitive sculpture by artist and dorkbot instigator Douglas Repetto. Consisting of enormous strips of transparent mylar strewn from the ceiling, wtih motors, string, and custom electronics, the piece "breathes" in sympathy with the ambient sounds in the gallery, rippling and reflecting light when there is a sound and resting, invisible, when there is silence. Because of the transparency of the mylar strips, the effect is subtle and eerie, a gossamer membrane that functions as acoustic barometer, making visible sonic phenomena that are often heard, but rarely seen.

Telaesthesia is the perception of events or objects not actually present. In Location One‚s Project Room, we present ** The Telaesthetic Finger **, a selection of works that function as acoustic crab traps: devices that are cast out and reeled back in, filled with booty...or not. On display: the booty and the devices.

Works by:

Sneaking into frequencies usually accessible only by police radios and emergency pagers, this piece uses a computer script to convert the data to ASCII and the messages are presented in real time on a scrolling LED display like so many stock quotes.

*Atsushi Nishijima*
recordings at the end of a kite sent out of sight and reeled back in.

*Heather Wagner*
"Attempted--Not Known" comes out of a longstanding hobby of sending recording devices through the mail, gathering acoustic documentation of their journeys. In this version, the packages are sent to impossible addressees, for example, "GOD", or "Amelia Earhart" and are, hopefully, returned to sender. Inexplicably, the reasons for nondelivery ˆ "insufficient address", "outside delivery limits" ˆ vary from addressee to addressee.
