Big Medium Gallery :: "Flat Earth Folded is a collaborative sculptural installation between Greg Pond and Jes Cahn-Thompson that uses transducers to activate various materials as speakers. The exhibition is both site and sense-specific. The arrangement of objects and sound in the work creates a reframing and redescribing of our temporal and spatial experience. A sonic transducer transforms the material to which it is attached into the device that conveys pulses of energy into audible sound. This transformation of energy to sound to spatial/sculptural arrangement defines the structure for each of these projects.
Flat Earth Folded explores the conceived relationship between space and object by utilizing sound as witness and the primary agent of inquiry of physical space. This approach is both ancient and modern. Electronic media and computer music programming are combined with an experience of sound that is defined by the material and spatial arrangement of the landscape constructed within the gallery."
