Spaceworks Tacoma announces “The Light We Hear” an exhibit of multimedia sculptures & installations by Andy Behrle at the 950 Gallery (formerly known as Spaceworks Gallery).
Primarily an installation artist, Behrle has been creating intimate sound sculptures since 2013 that imagine what light sounds like and what sound looks like. In his multimedia sculptures, Behrle embeds cutting edge technologies into the bodies of old radios, phonographs, and cameras, assigning new functions to each object while drawing upon its cultural history and design aesthetics for inspiration. The devices he creates transform the motion of light passing through water into hypnotic drones, allow viewers to listen to the colors of a stained glass window, and envision what the rhythms of the night sky might sound like. The technologies he employs afford him opportunities to hear the setting sun, make intellectual connections between water waves and radio signals, and re-experience the information of our physical world.
