"People hear what they see" - Bobby Darin
Sometimes inspiration is as simple as hearing a phrase, as was the case of this piece. Translating what’s heard into something that can be viewed is the core of this sculpture, which is a fantastical fusion of vinyl records, spool upon spool of cassette tape, juke box title strips, ribbon cable wiring, and film. The goal of this piece was to combine these elements from diverse eras of musical history, demonstrating how technological advances have evolved how we consume music.
Developed in 2017, Wrapped in Rhythm was originally installed at a branch of the United States Postal Service.
