Ion – Shanna Sordahl

Hanging light bulbs became speakers for recorded sounds, as audio amplifiers powered the filaments. The complexity of the auditory landscape was reflective of the viewers in the space. The more individuals who were present, the more lively and complex the interaction of sounds were, as they were transformed into a temporary sonic community.
