Untitled (Anechoic Chamber)
This print is part of a minimalist series by the artist documenting anechoic chambers, silent spaces used to measure the "self noise" of electroacoustic equipment such as microphones and speakers. People occupying anechoic chambers report hearing minute sounds produced by their bodies, such as their eyes blinking. The works function as representations of silence as well as our self-perception in silent moments. They are also detailed depictions of traditional subject matter – the human body – interpreted by a machine.
Nikita Gale’s multi-media art illustrates how consumer technologies extend the body through touch. Gale has a background in anthropology, and the artist’s work uncovers social and political histories by exploring long-term obsessions with acoustic and protective materials. Gale’s work shows how silence and noise can function as political positions.
This print is part of a minimalist series depicting the experience of our own body in a moment of silence—each print documents an anechoic chamber, silent spaces used to measure the "self noise" of electroacoustic equipment.More
