The Olduvai Cliff, 2010 - ongoing
An installation comprising of a sound piece that harnesses the latent acoustic properties of the gallery space. This sonic element has been composed around the resonant frequency of the room itself, in order to create the phenomenon of standing waves within the space.
This frequency is combined with a sine wave at exactly 111hz, the precise sound frequency that stimulates the brain to produce endorphins, resulting in, quite literally, a happy listener. The combination of these two signals is then intended to cause a heightened sense of environmental perception within the viewer.
To accompany the sound element, the space will be decorated with an illuminated wall sculpture in the shape of the outline of Buckminster Fullers Dymaxion Projection. This is intended to act as a focal point - akin to an altarpiece, for the experience listeners encounter when in the gallery space.
