Pete Froslie: Sonic Space
September 22 – October 13
TETC Room 128
“Sonic Space” is an immersive, interactive, software-based sound environment designed specifically for the Electronic Gallery. Froslie’s work manifests through a somewhat alchemical process involving combinations of mythological narrative with technological systems. His research considers relationships and intersections between fictional, static surfaces and flowing, mutable infrastructures.
The exhibition involves a responsive software that theatrically mixes historical and procedural narratives with viewer interaction, and synthesized sound. The work borrows its narrative from the stage play ‘Our American Cousin’ as well as related histories surrounding Lincoln’s assassination. Electronic voices, performed via computer text-to-speech output, complement active, geometric forms projected on the gallery wall. A computer in continuous performance offers visitors the potential for disruption of the virtual theater when simply entering the gallery space.
Froslie earned his B.F.A. in digital media from the University of Nevada. His works have been exhibited at galleries throughout the United States, including Boston, San Diego and Washington, D.C. He is an assistant professor of media art at the University of Oklahoma.
