“Interested in voice and repetition Dining Room (2014) explores the performative formation of collective utterance from a singular subject. While walking the parameter of her parents recently vacated dining room the artist simultaneously utters and records a singular, flat note. This single note is echoed back into the space through an amplifier at the same moment a new note is being uttered. This action is repeated until a full circle of the space has been completed.  As the constant looping of the utterance occurs the listener is presented with an ever- increasing echo. This echo slowly and consistently smothers the embodied utterance leaving a new acoustic object in its place…” Supporting Statment
