Photographs by Catherine McElhone and Southern Exposure
Beginning on January 13, 2014 artist Christine Sun Kim invited Shira Grabelsky and myself to take up residence at Southern Exposure to produce a month-long process oriented project. Deaf since birth, Kim creates work largely reflecting on her relationship to sound and language and invites the public to watch her conversations with us as the project develops.
Using breath as a physical limitation and wind as a misconception, we investigated the various states of breath, wind, sound, silence and communication as they exist and transform through physical interaction and installation. During the course of the project we lead workshops, held open hours and developed new works on site that resulted in a participatory public performance.
