installation at AVA, Chattanooga
shredded paper and construction materials, performance with musical bridge
This installation recreated the Tennessee River Valley that surrounds the city of Chattanooga. Construction materials created the basic mapping of the area and shredded paper was laid across the path of egress, forcing the viewer to "clear cut" the forest area upon entering the space. Techno bird noises emminated from the ladder that was placed to reference Signal Mountain. In the rear ot the gallery the "music" of the musical bridge.
Brumit and Wagner, at the closing of the exhibition, conducted three songs utitlizing the bridge's three note range. When cars drive over the bridge at 20mph they create a sound that is a step lower than when they drive 23mph. Brumit and Wagner scored 3 songs and invited cars to participate in creating the abstracted version of three songs.
