WAV (laughing, crying), 2018, two-channel video installation.
In WAV (laughing, crying), two large-scale projections of visualized datum are displayed on adjacent
walls of a dimly lit gallery space.
● (x2) bar-graphs (horizontal axis = frequency [Hz], vertical axis = volume [Hz])
● (x2) rhythmic patterns of vertical columns that silently rise and fall over time
The sets of graphic information point to intermediary sound-recordings and to bodies that once
laughed and cried. Given the contrast of emotions, these virtual presences read as having no
connection or unawareness of each other—or, as refusing to accept the legitimacy of each others
experience. Perhaps they simply feel differently. Nevertheless, WAV (laughing, crying) forms an
ambiguous reading of two corporealities that are both proximal and remote.
