Potential for triangles (2018)
-inhabits multiple states at the same time being aninstallation and/or a piece of music and/or a sculpture that operates within a potential state without any physical sound.. The potential state allows the listener to create an imaginary soundscape on their own by using their inner ear. Each imaginary listening experience is different from listener to listener, and each listening experience is completely valid.
The triangle is not to be considered as only an instrument. It is also a cultural marker and an embodiment of hierarchy in music and in knowledge. The triangle is often given to the child in a group considered being the least musical one; Hey- You can play the triangle - and the feeling of shame is present.
Potential for triangles gives the listener an opportunity to evoke an imaginary soundscape for triangles free of hierarchy and anxiety.
