Collective Geology of the Erased Space is a 2004 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
In this work, viewers are presented with an imaginary strata formed from those lost spaces between sites, machines, addresses and links as if they had collapsed upon themselves. This strata is imbued with fragments of conversations, recollections, errant sounds and pregnant silences as if the memory of communication had imparted itself on the strata in some way. Stretched thin like the surface of a balloon, underneath the razor sharp cursor these sounds whistle like a fingernail across the surface of a drum-head.
