As a chicano artist who grew up in rural Iowa, I am interested in hybridity,
transformation, and unusual narratives. I often work with ephemeral materials and
reference elements of metamorphosis, invisibility, mutation, and disappearance. In
exploring these conceptual and aesthetic concerns I have worked intensively with sound
in the form of radio broadcasts, gallery installations, and public works.
Invisible Rooms will be a user-controlled sound installation employing wireless surround-sound
headphones. Participants will each customize a unique experience by navigating
the installation space. Using computer-vision tracking, unique sound content is mapped
to different areas of the room. Simply by walking around, each user will pass in and out
of different sonic spaces. If they stop in an area of the room, they will continue to inhabit
that sound space. The overall effect will be intimate and mysterious.
