The Only Thing That Makes Life Possible is Not Knowing What Comes Next

Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon

Studio 1–Goodman

For this installation, sound artist Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon worked in residence to investigate how one’s perception of sound can be changed as he or she moves through space. Gordon created an interconnected series of listening rooms, each built with modular walls composed of a variety of materials (stone, metal, wood, cloth, etc.), and within it created a perpetually shifting audio experience from diffused sound projected from a ring of loudspeakers.

Gordon is a visual and sound artist who integrates audio technologies into sculptural forms to question relationships of affect to an environment. She has had solo shows at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (2014), Pro Arts Gallery (2013, Oakland), Eli Ridgway Gallery (2012, San Francisco), and Queens Nails (2009, San Francisco). She is also a member of the music and performance collective 0th.
