Resonance represents the most intimate internal presence of the artist – his heartbeat. From when the exhibition opens to when it closes, the artist wears a sensor that monitors his heartbeat and translates it into live sound in the gallery. The viewer becomes immersed in this disembodied sound, the source of which is not immediately made clear. What are we hearing? Where is it coming from? Once we learn that the source is the artist’s heartbeat, new questions arise: Where is he? What is he doing? Can we be sure it is really him? Could it be someone else or merely a recording?
