Scientific theories confirm much of our understanding about how energy transmits and is transformed. Whether that be within our own atmosphere, between various organisms, or even within our own bodies. However, so much of these interactions go unseen and are rarely acknowledged as anything other than a certainty of life. By way of exploration, both Sara Dittrich and Raúl Romero have constructed installations that feature the nuances of energy transmission. Each artistic practice is a unique undertaking of examining certain vessels by which these synergies take place, while further acknowledging their subtle existence through interaction.
Interdisciplinary artist, Sara Dittrich, creates sculptural experiences that often employ a range of mediums to create a shift in perspective from the exterior to the interior. Through sound, interactive technology, video, and performance, Dittrich showcases the many dualities that exist both around us and inside of us. Each work becomes an invitation for viewers to experience the unconscious pulses of movement, crafting reflective moments that are full of life. Dittrich successfully captures the humming activity while distilling it into a conceptually concise and elegant experience.
Sonic waves are made physical through the work of Raúl Romero, who considers sound as a vast medium to further examine the idea of connection. Inspired by his experiences in the varied landscapes of urban environments and overgrown jungles, Romero utilizes tools of reference and replacement to create installations that alter our perception of sound devices. Romero constructs sculptural sound equipment that mixes technology and plant material, centering the plants as the maker, conductor, or vessel for sound transmission. The resulting work empowers the beauty and significance of the materials, while provoking the currents of energy that radiate through the sculptures and all around us.
