root system (for Harry Bertoia)

One of Harry Bertoia's "sonambient" sound sculptures sits on display at Bowling Green State University. However, its resonant tines remain sonically isolated in a courtyard outside the Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery lobby. This 4-channel audio installation imagines that the sculpture has sonic “roots” extending through the window. As the roots creep further into the lobby, a branching generative system stretches recordings of the sculpture in time and pitch.
