Sharon Phelan

Imagine a sonic artefact arriving from an unknown space and time. Sharon Phelan’s At the Threshold takes the listener on a journey through the dichotomous architecture of a conch shell, encountering acoustic anomalies told through feedback loops, field recordings and a constructed chorus of the artist's own voice and that of a digital surrogate at various stages of machine learning.

The viewer is encouraged to explore the virtual sculpture by using zoom and rotation. Please use Chrome or Firefox.
