Latham Zearfoss&rsquo\; immersive sound installation in the P roject Room revolves around the consensual\, the hopeful\, the tentative an d tenuous YES\, through an echoing reverberation of layered recordings of t he repeated word. For Zearfoss\, affirmation is ritual. Our digital lives f orm around the most minute likenesses and passing acknowledgments\; a margi nal creed of yes-ness permeates our social networks and forms of interactio ns. But how does the interconnectivity of the isolated potentially re-inscr ibe that same isolation\, by creating platforms of easy approval? Here\, th e human need to be seen and heard is validated as call &ndash\; &ldquo\;do you hear me?&rdquo\; &ndash\; and response &ndash\; &ldquo\;yes\, yes we do .&rdquo\;
