a spatial asyndeton is a site-specific installation that was commissioned for the Architectones festival at the Saline Royale d’Arc et Senans in southeastern France. It consists of a circular sculptural element comprised of large repeated loops of sisal fiber baler twine that surrounds a single offset three-inch circular mirror below a balcony from which four-channel audio is projected. Designed using custom software that maps the acoustic topography of the space, the piece explores the shifts in perceptual attention and resolution that occur when the experience of the work becomes the subject of the work itself.
