This series of work investigates the interwoven relationships between materials, digital systems, sound, and the human body. In these experimental steel sculptures, unconventional instruments, and large-scale installations, FSU Art Professor Terri Lindbloom and Assistant Professor Clinton Sleeper draw parallels between the stature and role of the body in the contemporary moment against the poetics and possibilities of materials drawn from the earth. Here a digital choreography reduces chakra frequencies traditionally associated with balancing the body and spirit (of the human sort), into physical vibrations and mechanical noise. Employing transducer speakers and handmade electronics, those balancing frequencies fail to translate into industrial materials or gallery space, we are made to feel distant from the work and unbalanced in our bodies.
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 90 minutes prior to most Mattie Kelly Arts Center Mainstage performances. For more information call 850-729-6044 or visit www.mattiekellyartscenter.org.
