Exercises of an Audionaut by Adam Gibney
Opening 6:00pm Thursday 27 March 2014
@ Broadcast Gallery DIT Portland Row
Exercises of an Audionaut is the continuation of a body of work that investigates the relationship between technology, language and the viewer. The objectification of language in this work has manifested itself into the analysis of Mantras. Mantric utterances provide an avenue of investigation in which language has become a cognitive tool to emancipate the speaker from societal problems and distractions. These ‘Transcendental Phonemes’ present themselves not only as objects but also as tools, blurring the boundary between function and meaning in language. By abandoning the assumption that communication is the only function of language, Exercises of an Audionaut aims to question the invisible forces at play in the creation and manipulation of societies.
