Timothy Crowley Sound Installation Artist

Lift Installation

Timothy Crowley 1999 Albany Rd Bristol

This installation looks similar to the inside of a lift / elevator, there is a wall mounted polished aluminium panel, and the buttons are flat speakers playing a pre-recorded composition by the artist. The composition contains sounds with relatively long silences in between. The silences are an important part because the installation depicts a moment of silence, one might experience in a lift. The installation's appearance as a lift gives the viewer something to focus on visually, and mentally, possibly distracting them from other outside sources of sound. Because of this, there is a reaction provoked in the viewer, they are waiting for the next sound, just as if one is waiting for their floor.
