Bounce House revels in the opportunity to communally share awareness of the tactile qualities of sound. With a soundtrack provided by international and local sound artists, designers, and musicians, the public during the 2015 Fusebox Festival will immerse themselves in a room expressly designed with an audio system that delivers very low frequency sounds. Attendees will be able to feel and dance to beats that can only be felt rather than heard, exposing a deeper understanding of what sound can be.
Christine Sun Kim will be Artist in Residence at the VAC from March 30 to April 4, 2015, where she will produce a process-oriented project to engage audiences in an interactive performance through two new installations: Calibration Room and Bounce House.
Deaf since birth, Kim creates work that addresses her relationship to sound and language. She calls into question ideas of ownership and the ability to broaden one’s awareness by rethinking the physicality and other dimensions of sound through visual expression. Often wondering what it would be look like if we had the ability to calibrate our surroundings to fit our needs and desires instead of calibrating ourselves to fit social norms, Kim will ask participants to define their own kind of sound and silence, as she often has during her personal investigation of unlearning sound.
