When asked to make a site specific piece the stairwell of the Woldenberg Art Center jumped to mind. Many hours have been spent with me sitting on the steps taking a break, warming in the sun and having a chin wag. Every evening as the sun goes down the handsome lantern turns on and along with it a diabolical noise.
Happily the noise drew me to the acoustic properties of the space and encouraged me to make a piece to challenge and cooperate with the sound.
Maybe I could just have told facility services to fix the light but sure, where would the fun be in that?
