Rolling

Audiovisual Installation, 2016

Rolling is an audiovisual installation composed of synthesized sound, projected light and a field recording that draws inspiration from the empathogenic effects produced by MDMA.  The sound and color in Rolling ebbs and flows in intensity and in unison echoing the surges of empathy experienced with the flood of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Reflecting the experience, Rolling’s ebb phase is particularly hard to identify until the corresponding flow phase is underway and we are enveloped.
