3 Surfaces is a site specific sound and light installation for the main stairwell of the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena. The piece incorporates the unique sounds, natural light, and architectural details of the space as primary materials. The sound piece is formed using field recordings of the space itself, captured during peak activity hours. Using digital filtering and processing, the recordings are transformed into a subtle environmental “tint” to alter how the audience perceives the space. The space will be physically altered using scrims to create 3 new surfaces above the stairwell, which will allow for the natural light to be filtered through while suggesting a more private, intimate experience.
