“Closer Before We Touch” is an animatronic sound sculpture exploring the interplay between physical and simulated spatialization. Consisting of a motor driven set of speakers thrusting in and out towards the storefront gallery window, the work alternates between waves of noise and difference tones: beating, panning, and clustering around each other. The continuous movement of sound – at once both dizzying and mesmerizing – creates a disorienting space where sonic materiality flows in and out of ambiguity and the perception of depth exists in an intangible position between the real and the simulated.
