Disfluency and Delay

The mixed media works in Disfluency and Delay consider the human inclination to adjust outward appearances, illustrating this tendency with contrasting examples from nature. Each work presents audio graphs of impromptu performances culled from YouTube videos, layered with audio spectrograms of natural events (glacial collisions, ice fractures, earthquakes), sculptural forms implying air movement, and charted output and capacity data from Ontario’s wind farms. 

Disfluency and Delay was exhibited at Loop Gallery, Toronto, April 27 – May 19, 2013.
