SMA Central Court Music: Reflection/ Projection is an installation that explores the process of reflection through the medium of sound. Different sound-fields emerge from six audio channels located throughout the Central Court. Listeners are encouraged to contribute to the sound environment by reading excerpts into a recording microphone that will then be looped and projected into the sound field. Video: Myself, Myself, Myself is a video installation composed of public participants who individually recite the word "myself". The catalouge of faces creates a repetition of images that result in an exploration of how language and appearance interact with identity.
