In Residence 6, 2009

— Audiovisual Installation

In Residence is an ongoing work in-progress exploring the relationship between sound, narrative, and location. It is a series of experiments in various forms: audiovisual performance, installation, and CD/DVD publication constructed from photographs and recordings, collected during three artist residencies in fall of 2007. Through digital manipulation, the source materials are transformed; a translation of experience, from the literal to the romantic.

In Residence 6 focuses specifically on the rain soaked month spent at the Espy Foundation residency in Oysterville, WA, October 2007. Using the steady drone of the constant rain as a point of departure, the work explores the emotional response to this prolonged period of rain through the construction of a melancholic and meditative narrative.
