Zenith  2000/2015

Sculpture

Zenith is an evolution of an earlier work that was part of “Falling,” documented in these pages.  The project was changed to accommodate a new sound work that is played out of it.  The piece was places alone in a room and the isolation served to subject the viewer to a wash of sound created by adapting a vinyl recording from the “Jackie Gleason Orchestra,” of “I Only Have Eyes For You.”  At one point, the record skips over a passage; this passage repeats and is thus transformed over a 10-15 intervals into a sonorous ambient beat that like the heart, fades and stops.  An audio CD of three variations on the sequence are available from the artist.
