Portals  II                 2009


Sixteen glass globes are mounted on a white brick wall. Each globe contains a speaker and an small led light. The speakers emit sounds and the leds light up in response to the volume of the sounds.

Each pod is broadcasting a different sound. The sounds have been gathered by thirty different participating collaborators. The collaborators were instructed to gather sounds from their everyday lives.

In theory, sixteen viewers could be simultaneously having sixteen different auditory experiences from the lives of thirty collaborators.
