hiveMind explores the sonic potentials latent in ceramic vessels as a site from which to convey a visual and auditory resonance. In doing so, it exposes the emergent acoustic properties of
clay bowls as a sensory synchronicity between movement and sound. Two platforms, populated by hundreds of clay vessels, are pushed back and forth at different speeds to incite and sound ceramic marbles housed inside the bowls. As the platforms’ motion change speed over time, different bowls rotate and loop with more velocity thereby amplifying their characteristic resonance in concert with the others. hiveMind was conceived as a site-specific installation for a stairwell landing at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, NYC.
