The one and only Doug Henderson is a part of [silence] group show in Gigantic Art Space (59 Franklin St. downtown). If you have never seen his "untitled 2004" speakers filled with water this may be the last chance before they fly away to Europe! The sound going through the speakers generates amazing patterns on the water surface, no actual sound is audible... Great piece, which premiered at vertexList two years ago. [silence] is an intriguing show of conceptual sound art, revolving around silence and capacity of sound to be experienced via other senses. The exhibition was curated by Galen Joseph-Hunter and Dylan J. Gauthier. I will be back to check it out, the opening reception was super-packed!
