An interactive data visualization and sonification project, Joel Ong’s new installation work Aeolus Notification or A Reverse Pilgrimage will be presented at the Design Commission Gallery on Friday September5, 2014 as part of the Pioneer Square Art Walk.
For his work at The Substation in September 2012, sound artist Joel Ong will create an installation featuring an array of kinetic sound wagons that move about in the gallery. The wagon is not only a sound source but also actively receives input from its environment to subtly alter the acoustic environment. This installation allows sound and space to become gateways to multiple narratives by developing notions of space and identity while at the same time invoking and composing with the resonant frequencies of The Substation Gallery’s unique architecture. In so doing, the act of listening becomes less of a sidelined activity and more of a focused presence that demands its own time and space.
Gallery opening : 30th August 2012 730pm.
