Titled “Levitating State Secrets,” this installation continues work in architecturally reproducing spaces of United States intelligence. This series of investigations uses transducers to amplify sound through built surfaces. In this installation, state secrets collected from wikileaks and other public sources are conducted through a lightweight surface hung from helium balloons. Thematically, the work explores planned failure and benign neglect.
At Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, Failing to Levitate exhibit. On view June 6 – July 3, 2014.
