Pool of Sound by Lina Dib, 2015
In collaboration with Mulitmedia artist Lina Dib, “Pool of Sound is an interactive two channel sound installation. As visitors walk through the dynamic space, they push the sound of water with their bodies. The enchanted zone literally becomes a pool of sound where sound becomes substance, and along with water, it becomes something to be physically and playfully encountered. Within this installation, sound becomes more palpable as does our relationship to resources and to our environment. Sound, water and movement are made (in)to matter. The more one moves, the louder and stronger the sound of water. The viewers’ bodies leave no traces except those of the sound waves created by their presence.” (www.linadib.com)
The Bridge, 2015 is a site specific experimental performance and video allowing the viewer to be completely immerse inside the architecture of the silo space.

The bridge connects the space and the body through its energy, texture and rawness.
This piece was part of the SITE HOUSTON Exhibit at the Silos at Sawyer, 2015
