Waking Vessels

2005, site-specific mixed media installation with light and sound; bottles, lights, electronics, sound, debris


Viewed through part of a wall of an adjacent building that has been knocked through, streetlights and passing cars cast streaks of light, shadows and noises into the darkness of a seemingly abandoned space. Bottles strewn across the floor begin to glow and flicker as recorded sounds originating from the space resurface and reverberate within it. Occasionally, hissing and low rumbling noises rise above the other sounds in unison to bright lights shining from the balcony-like structures within the space, illuminating it and that which lies within.
