On the sonority of clay.
In a 1969 edition of IEEE Journal, Richard G. Woodbridge III proposed that clay pots contain the traces of soundwaves. He claimed that these were left as imprints on the surface, which could be made audible using suitable technology.
In collaboration with a potter, and various experimental musicians, Dan will use Woodbridge’s claim to interrogate the sonority of animate and inanimate objects and the ways of listening suggested by sedimented, inaudible audio.
Dan will also curate related film matter for screening during his residency. Contact the gallery for details*.
