Multi-channel sound and computer-controlled lights; wood, fabric

Composed and recorded by Marc McNulty

Cardon + McNulty created a sonic and sculptural environment conveying sensations of instability and precariousness usually felt on a larger scale. With increasingly numerous and alarming accounts of disastrous floods, storms and quakes, the artists felt compelled to transform a place one would see as shelter into a space that evokes anything but safety.

The installation attempts to bring some tangibility to an experience that for many of us remains abstract, though perhaps increasingly less so.

The interior of the studio was modified to exaggerate its existing floor-plan, with its angled wall, low ceiling and New England aesthetic. Light dynamically alters the space in counterpoint to sound from opposing ends of the audible spectrum, creating an experience that is responded to viscerally rather than interpretively.

Echo's Chamber
2010
masonite, fir, paint, sound
8 x 8 x 8 feet

A stage, a book, or a cave. The story of Echo, as told by Echo (is it an interior monologue?), or by someone who has taken pity on Echo's inability to express herself and does the talking for her - at the nymph's expense. A text about frustration, unrequited love, original creative acts and mimicry.
The structure invites the viewer-reader to walk through the book and become a part of the text, by contributing sound to a live feed and their shadow and shape to the composition.

Lando's Cottage
2010
book, Basswood desk, wall appendices

An obsessive analysis of one of Edgar Allan Poe's last tales touches on the philosophy of landscape design, nineteenth century painting, Poe's life and loves, in 103 footnotes, only to come to an unexpected conclusion.
The installation consists of a hand-made artist's book, a desk and stool, wall charts and photographs.
