• Working with the knobs and installed into a pendulum hanging from the ceiling
  • it swings appears heavy
  • sound is taken from news clips surrounding Weinstein news about sexual harrassment
  • idea of each knob having own sound and to build into a cacophony of noise starting from individual sound to layer up – unable to discern much – to finish with one sound – played on a loop
  • the doorknob is an object that is, as a child, at eye height. The term ‘knob’ is used as a¬†derogatory term – with the current media coverage of prominent figures embroiled in sexual assault, the idea of of these bunch of knobs swinging like a pendulum in time, like a ticking constant that runs consistently, yet is only now a large object in the media
  • individual audio clips from news around this subject add tension to the swinging heavy familiar object
  • following a group crit – I need to finish this piece of work – lift up the pendulum and use different attachments as it was agreed that the fishing wire looks tacky and unfinished – I have ordered guitar strings as this may add it’s own sound when the piece is in motion.
  • I have also thought about adding a microphone amongst the knobs with a speaker that it swings over – inspired by¬†Steve Reich
