Project Description

WaveUp is a kinetic sound installation that translocates a remote ocean environment in real-time within Skol’s large gallery space. Outfitted by Kelly with a collection of dynamic speakers, a new sonic environment is created for the gallery through the interpretation of a steady stream of  information emitted by Fisheries and Oceans Canada outlying wave data buoys. As ocean waves become sound waves, WaveUp permits the public to access a remote natural environment that would otherwise be inaccessible. This exhibition is accompanied by a text by artist Peter Flemming.
