trine – speakers, steel jewelry chain, 3D-printed plastic, 3-channel conversation (recorded November 17, 2019)
The audio playing through the speakers is from a recording of three intimate partners talking about their relationship with one another, rendered unrecognizable by converting each person’s speech into very low frequencies, but carrying the cadence of conversation. The mesh ripples up and down, carrying waves across its shimmering surface.
Perfectly opposite phase is impossible among three speakers; one will always be moving in the same direction as at least one other. True reciprocal movement cannot ever be realized with these three bodies. Each speaker connects to the other along the side in individual, chained partnerships, and across the fabric of the polyamorous union.
