Infinity of wind muskets
Artist talk: Matthew Shannon
Wednesday 8 July 2009, 6pm
The Physics Room
Melbourne based artist Matthew Shannon is set to launch his project Infinity of wind muskets at The Physics Room. On show during July, the work sees Shannon wire up a set of lights and an electric guitar via a sound to light amplifier.
Picking up on the physical resonance of the space and whatever happens therein during the projects’ installation, Shannon’s guitar effectively functions as a vibration microphone with his lighting rig creating a sequence of fluctuations and shudders within the perceptual architecture of the gallery.
