title: a weave / the fragment

description: 8-channel, generative sound installation in an 8x8 black cube with audio-reactive LEDs and travel ephemera.Installed at MIT List Visual Arts Center, this 8’x8’ black box features 8 channels of generative audio, audio reactive LEDs, and kente scarves from Ghana. The work probes the complexities of travel as a process of becoming. Alluding to memory, desire, expectation, and the jigsaw of cosmopolitanism, the recollection diffuses an audio collage across a multichannel installation that includes spoken extracts from journal entries, literary references, location recordings, processed samples from Ghanaian musicians and sounds of travel ephemera.
