Sound Installation

“Take Care” is a sound installation that spatializes voice and poetry. Using four staggered horizontally arranged speakers, the piece explores the relationship between the individual/collective body, the artist’s experience with chronic illness, the pandemic, and space. Audience members can mix the polyphonic sound poem by moving around the installation, thereby resulting in a different poetic experience based on their movements. In this way, the work aims to create a somatic, spatial poetics that is both site-specific and collaboratively constituted.
