Installation for Attic Crawlspace

A focus study on using motor arrays in an installation. The audience is confronted with the initial struggle of entering the attic space, but rewarded with an intimate setting—a hearth—where a gathering can engage in conversation with each other or the object itself.

Mimicking the atmosphere of a campfire, two continuously chirping “crickets” are inconspicuously placed in the space. The disruptive vibration motors in the “fire” randomly enter and exit the sonic field, either disrupting or contributing to the dialogue surrounding the campfire.
