"Laa" is an interactive sound and video installation that is a translation of another video work entitled "As I Lay Me Down (Hotel Room Floor)" which can be found at vimeo.com/49332073 While vacationing in Asbury Park, NJ durring 4th of July 2012 with some friends, I noticed this small play of light peaking through the curtain onto our ceiling. It was utterly sublime. Entranced by this light I was compelled to take video of it. My friends didn't share in this experience, they went about their morning, unsure and unable to understand my obsession. "As I Lay Me Down" is a reflection of that visual experience, of having a private internal moment in communal environment of others who did not share my perception. In contrast, "Laa" attempts to translate that visual experience, into an auditory one. Special Thanks to Matt Harris (Columbia College) for his support with this installation.
