Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Experiment in F# Minor, 2013, 72-channel audio installation including speakers, photosensors, and wooden worktables, 96 1/8 x 72 x 30 inches. Courtesy of Luhring Augustine, New York.
Experiment in F# Minor is a collection of bare speakers of all shapes and sizes set upright on a large table. Light sensors are inlaid into the edge of the table and as you move around the room, your shadows cause the various sound and instrumental tracks to fade up, overlap, mingle and fade down.
For over three decades, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have crafted multimedia environments that offer multi-sensory experiences. Their works incorporate sound, technologies, and objects that seem somehow obsolete. They live and work in Grindrod, British Columbia.
Held in conjunction with the University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus’ Living Things Festival.
