Relayer

Peter Maybury

Description

In Relayer, the subject views a screen in a darkened room, lit only indirectly by the light from the screen. The image is undramatic and largely unchanging. Watching the quiet absorption of the subject allows us space to imagine images suggested by the sounds. The soundtrack, a composite of many sources, is sometimes quiet, sometimes loud and visceral. We become engaged in mental images of the sounds original sources and locations, constructing narratives, relating it to the modulating light, only to be jolted from these images into other spaces as the audio switches from one environment to another. Relayer was played on a continuous loop, within ‘Delay’, presented at The lives of spaces, Irish Pavilion, Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, 11th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, 2008′
