Framing Device

interactive sound art, performance, masks

In collaboration with Lucy Kendrick Smith.

Premiere: July 2016, Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum of Art.

An interactive, two-channel audio performance that explores the personal and social perception of experience. Framing Device invites participants to wear viewing masks and choose their own aural pathways on wireless headphones to navigate the psychic and physical space of the art museum. All of the audience participants choose between two different audio programs. They're given choreographic suggestions through their headphones, creating a group dance performance throughout the museum galleries.
