sound composition - Jed Palmer
In Automotive Geologies Jason Waterhouse presents hybridized car forms in the cavernous basement space of the George Farmer Building. The installation is accompanied by a sound scape developed in collaboration with composer Jed Palmer.
The gloss black sculptures occupy the space elusively like specters; forms reflecting the environment making reading a slippery affair. Presented as strange otherworldly geologies, the works also carry the style lines unmistakably of the automotive industry.
Automotive Geologies is a hybrid space, unmistakably man made, yet full of yearning to slip back into the earth.
