Joyce Hinterding | Aura (installation view), 2009

Entitled Aura, these graphite and gold drawings take the form of fractal antennas. When connected to a sound system they make audible the critical mass of signals and energy emitted from the local environment.

Formally the drawings operate as meditative fields that depict and compress time and space within distorted soundscapes. With a nod to Fluxus art of the 1960s, Hinterding explores the world we occupy across media such as sound art and experimental drawing.

Aura challenges our thoughts about representation, functionality and energy scavenging while evidencing the local fields and contributing to the site-specific and dynamic aural landscape that is being generated literally out of thin air.
