“We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together” is a kinetic sound and light installation that investigates the deconstruction/reconstruction of white noise and white light. White noise is what the human ear hears in the presence of all wavelengths of the audible spectrum. Technically, within a segment of white noise you have all the materials for every song ever written, and every song that will ever be written. Similarly, white light is what the human eye sees in the presence of all wavelengths of the visible spectrum. Just as a prism divides white light into the complete visible color spectrum (a rainbow), “We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together” explores the idea of a sonic prism, where the ear becomes the location where different frequencies combine to create ‘white’.
The work is constructed of kinetic sound and light machines, each projecting both sound and light around the room. While ‘white’ is never projected, colors and sounds that fit together like puzzle pieces are projected in the gallery space, allowing locations of ‘white’ to appear and disappear as the kinetic machines move sound/light in different directions.
