Artist Statement
Empathy Test explores the sounds of a machine model of self-recognition, approach/avoidance behavior and the inevitability of measurement to alter the thing measured. The piece is quite open to completion by the viewer, since it has no overt content, but is simultaneously a kind of mystery-it will not be clear to the viewer... [whether or not] ...s/he is influencing the production of sound. The piece approaches the idea of barrier in terms of the limits of communication...what can be recognized, understood or spoken.
Note: Sounds are presented in the context of the exhibition, and so the sound of each piece mingles with the others.
