Broken/Unbroken Terracotta

In her first installation at The Kitchen, Liz Phillips worked with sound, space, time, and movement to create an interactive aural environment, known as a capacitance field. As viewers navigated the space around two metal forms (a suspended copper-aluminum sheet and an aluminum mylar shape on the floor), they manipulated electrical fields to produce varied tones depending on their speed, distance, and direction within the gallery space.
