Tempe- Dinner and art exhibit: "The Activity of Sound"

  • Dec 29, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's meet for dinner, a drink, or a snack. Feel free to discuss any science topic. This is a great chance to meet the other members of our group. Then we'll walk over to the Night Gallery to see and hear the Art Exhibit: The Activity of Sound.

During the month of December, ASU’s Night Gallery will be full of artworks that create sounds, respond to sounds, provoke thought about sound and manipulate the sonic environment. Kinetic sculptures, sound-responsive electronic installations and video art will fill the gallery with the Activity of Sound. (description listed below)

Admission is free (for the Night Gallery at Tempe Marketplace).

Description: Sound art exhibition honoring the artist John Cage

"When I hear what we call music, it seems to me that someone is talking. And talking about his feelings, or about his ideas of relationships. But when I hear traffic, the sound of traffic—here on Sixth Avenue, for instance—I don't have the feeling that anyone is talking. I have the feeling that sound is acting. And I love the activity of sound [...] I don't need sound to talk to me."  John Cage

Known for his pioneering use of chance operations in the production of art works, Cage’s work has been so influential on all of the arts, especially dance and the visual arts, that he is considered one of the forefathers of interdisciplinary and intermedia approaches. Although many of his most important works were completed over 50 years ago, his ideas remain fresh and provocative. His continued influence is celebrated in this lively exhibition, which will close out a year of world-wide celebrations of the John Cage centennial.

exhibit: Subway Sonata 3, 2012. Muriel Magenta. Sound vibrations from wireframes of 3D animation, still frame from the video, 3min. loop

Eight of the artists in the exhibition are associated with ASU: Associate Professor Barry Moon, Associate Professor Hilary Harp, Associate Professor and Interim Director of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering Garth Paine, Professor Muriel Magenta, PhD candidate Byron Lahey, PhD candidate Tatyana Koziupa, and alumni Laurie Lundquist and Tim Hogan. Also featured are Canadian artist Reva Stone and a collaborative project by Pittsburgh artists Scott Andrew, Harrison Apple, Stephanie Ross and Suzie Silver, and Swiss artist Tobias Madison.

    Dinner was great. Art is art....it is one's perception. I believe Sound is not my thing! I loved the Clock & the cards!
