Sound Sculpture in Blandwood: A Path to Redemption?
April 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
A house, no matter how grand or humble, tells a specific story. It reveals cultural values, societal norms, personal choices, and collective understandings. When we go back in time through the portal of architectural space, we are faced with the dilemma as to how to view the narrative with which we are confronted. Interestingly, our interpretations expose as much about our own values and influences as the things we are judging.
The walls of the Blandwood tell a story of brilliance and ignorance, clarity and incomprehension. There is an ever-present dichotomy that is revealed in the architectural styles and details of the space. These physical manifestations mirror the individual dualities exhibited by the persons who inhabited these rooms.
The exhibited sound sculpture is titled “A Path to Redemption?” It is a prompt to incite reflection and contemplation of not just what a viewer is seeing and hearing, but also an invitation to look within oneself to question one’s own values.
Visually, its most prominent feature is the exterior juxtaposition of Zebrawood, grown internationally in Central America, Africa, and Brazil with the more locally grown Walnut. Sonically, the interior of the sculpture creates bowed sounds reminiscent of breathing along with percussive impulses suggestive of the relentless beat of time.
Ultimately, it is a hopeful piece that creates space for questions, introspection, possibilities, and growth. Join us by sending an email to reserve your FREE ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org
