Wave Over Wave
An audio installation with 3 audio tapes and 24 motorized drumsticks. Three audio tapes play continuously while interacting with the rhythms produced by the motorized drumsticks. Wave Over Wave is a memorial and a history, a gendered response to living at the edge of the sea.
My desire is to create a work that perhaps becomes a memorial to those lost at sea and an acknowledgment of the complexity of our relationship to the ocean. In my research I looked specifically at historical ideas of gender in our relationships with the ocean.
