Michael Brewster: See Hear Now

February 16, 2002 - April 20, 2002
A Sonic Drawing and Five Acoustic Sculptures

Along with artists involved in the Light and Space Movement in California in the 1960’s, Michael Brewster became interested in exploring the boundaries of phenomenological experience as a means of providing the viewer with a cognitive awareness of how the process of our perceptions conditions our imaginations and our understandings of an art work. Using sound to create a perceptual field as opposed to an object also established a kind of secondary, imaginary visual experience as well as the primary aural one. Instead of walking around a sculptural object, the experience of Brewster’s work requires us to move through the sound as a sculptural material, one that allows us to explore it from within. His work establishes a unique dynamic between viewer and artwork. For his project at LACE, Michael Brewster constructed a sound chamber in which he presented five different \”acoustic sculptures\” which last four to six minutes each, operated from a touch screen.
