Jason Wright’s installation an Artifact of Mass extends beyond its individual components. It is the third in a series of object integrated sound installations, and builds upon concepts and processes setup in Black Series I & II.


an Artifact of Mass is comprised of speakers and other sound emitters which are distributed throughout the two main exhibition spaces of the Audio Foundation. These speakers act doubly as sculptural objects and sound-producers in relation to an array of painted panels mounted along the walls. The substance, colour, texture, depth of these paintings is mirrored both physically and audibly as the viewer navigates through three distinct speaker systems which transmit a soundscape made up of vocal, mechanical, organic physical materials.
