This installation is a collaborative effort by Sydney-based artists Christine Simpson and Cade Turner. Gleaned from Simpson’s sonic sculpture Long Day’s Journey, a construction that behaves somewhat like an Aeolian harp, manifests low frequency sounds of the air’s movements via 32 dacron threads tied under tension through a hollow steel drum.
Still imagery and sound recordings extracted from this artwork have been distilled by Cade Turner to create the fluid composition: Metaphysical to be projected into the space at Salamanca Arts Centre.
This installation creates a sensational experience that is at once quietly confronting and comforting. Metaphysical potentially transports the experiencer into another reality: the energy field of infinite space, energy to which we, in human form, are intrinsically entwined.
