Doorways of Meaning


Viewers generated voices that spoke about the doorway as a metaphor for the boundary between inner and outer experience. I hung red and green cord networks and illuminated them with red and green lights. Viewers in the room triggered photocells that generated voices (from a sampler) that spoke to issues of inner experience and outer reality. These voices were accompanied by random note sequences. By appropriate movements, viewers could create combinations of sounds and single voices.
