Angie Atmadjaja: Structure
1 – 23 July 2011
Chinese Arts Centre presents two different site-specific sound installations by local artist Angie Atmadjaja. Angie’s works usually consist of minimal audio-visual installations. By creating a space with minimal visuals and audio she challenges the audience to focus solely on the subtle changes in the sound triggered by their presence in the space. Angie’s dependent audio installations explore the fluid yet sensitive relationship between the audio waves that continually surround us and the day-to-day sounds that we can always hear. The audience will experience subtle changes in the volume and depth of sound as they move around the space, as their movement in the gallery alters the sound.
Both of the works, Intrinsic and Structure, emphasise the impact of our presence and movement in relation to the space. Intrinsic is a site dependent audio and light installation, which reacts sensitively to sound vibrations. Visitors will be able to alter the brightness of the lights hanging within the space by moving around the gallery. Structure is an audio installation, in which an invisible sound landscape is created by locating the audio peak and null point (the specific points in a room where sound vibrations can and can’t be heard) within the space. Sounds disappear and reappear when you move around the room. A designated walking path will act as a guide for the visitor to experience the audio landscape.
