No matter.»

Presented as a series of condensed aerial views of an artificial site installed on vibrating MDF panels, Eyes on the Horizon Perhaps explores a form of suspension of memory and matter. Disturbed by the oscillations of transducers installed underneath, as they capture the visitors' steps and the consequent structural vibrations propagating through the venue's floors, each topography gradually morphs over the duration of the exhibition. The original formlessness of dust and other employed residua is thus exploited as a potential «operative condition» (Rajchman,1998) in which sound and time act as a «complicating force.»
