Tiny sounds are all around us, hiding where we can't hear them: matter exerting force creates waves in solids, liquids, and air alike. These waves interact constantly while our attention is taken up by other things. When two people speak for instance, the air of the voice moves particles creating sound. When a water droplet hits the water making a sound which dissipates, the water wave continues to spread out. Even traffic, when viewed from the sky, ebbs and flows like a wave. Alone each sound makes a simple wave...but with only a single companion sound the resulting wave is non-repeating, beautiful in its complexity. (Seth Cluett) Seth Cluett is an installation artist and educator living and working in Troy, NY. His work has dealt primarily with the relationship between the body and sound or light as well as architecture as an extension of the body. His research focuses on the effect of sound and light wave propagation on space perception and cognition. His work has been shown/performed at the ICMC in Habana, Cuba and the Acoustical Society of America; the ICA, Mobius Artist Space, MassArt/nonpod in Boston; Diapason and Engine 27 Galleries, The Knitting Factory, and ABCnoRio in New York; Deep Listening Space in Kingston; and Betty Rymer Gallery at the Art Institute of Chicago, Heaven, Artemisia Galleries and Deadtech in Chicago, amongst others. Seth's work is documented on Errant Bodies Press, Kissy, Crank Satori, and Wavelet records, as well as upcoming releases on Sedimental and BoxMedia. He also has a track as part of the new book Brandon LaBelle and Stephan Vitiello co-edited, "Surface Tension: Problematics of Site". www.onelonelypixel.org For further information, please contact Agnes Bolt at agnes_bolt@hotmail.com
