Sound narrative: Georges Bataille - “Eroticism”
This work is an inquiry into the first encounter between lovers. The installation deconstructs this experience into its basic elements: visual, auditory, and tactile. After being pulled in by the light, you fade into darkness so you can now pay close attention to sound and touch. Each experience is manifested intimately, hidden in darkness for you to find. “A stranger whispers into your ear. A slight hesitation, you reach out and touch.”
