A dear friend + collaborator of ours, Andy Demirjian, has a new show at the Mitzi & Warren Eisenberg Gallery, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey through 30 June. Andy, trained as a musician, has worked in video art for the past ten years. He’s a masterful soundscaper and, well, public sociologist asking questions about our daily habits.
The show features sounds from his residency at Grand Canyon National Park. Andy placed field recorders at various locations along the south rim of the canyon which collected sounds and allowed him create an audio database which he introduces as a new style of portraiture for an iconic American landscape.
