VEILS OF LANGUAGE

15’ x 15’ x 15’

Sound Installation using cotton fabric and field recordings

Seven blue sheer veils hang to form a labyrinth of text suspended in a small room.  Translucent layers of letters are visible, but no words form at any vantage point.  Audio recordings of experimental sound sculptures interweave with site-specific field recordings of various landscapes, including a bamboo forest, coastal foghorns, inland ponds, and the spring melt of frozen ice fields, displacing the verbal as an identifier of place.  This installation creates a meditative space for considering self-location within the construct of language.
