CalArts (California Institute of the Arts), 2006, MFA (In Progress)
Telic Arts Exchange and the Center for Integrated Media at the California Institute of the Arts present a sound installation by the Korean media artist Ki Chul Kim.
“Sound Looking - Rain” is a sound installation that investigates the nature of perception and representation in relation to the Buddhist concept of emptiness. Suspended from the gallery ceiling is a matrix of audio speakers, wires and monofilament, the audio that fills the space is a sound collage of falling rain. Kim’s sound landscape induces us to float between the opposing forms of sight and sound. Kim also references a formal minimalism as we experience the shifting relationships between sound, speakers, the gallery space and our bodies.
This exhibition is made possible in part by the generous support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
