Experiment in F# Minor

Cardiff & Miller

January 18 – March 15, 2020

Experiment in F# Minor is an installation by artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller.

It is organized through a collaboration between the Living Things Festival and the Kelowna Art Gallery.

On a large table sits a collection of bare speakers of all shapes and sizes. Light sensors are inlaid into the edge of the table and as the viewers move around the room, their shadows cause the various sound and instrumental tracks to fade up and overlap, mingle and fade down. Numerous viewers in the room create a cacophony of musical compositions that vary according to where the audience walks or how many people are in the room. When the space is empty, the table fades to silence.

For over three decades, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have crafted multimedia environments that offer multi-sensory experiences with substance and depth. Their works incorporate sound, technologies, and objects that seem somehow obsolete. Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller live and work in Grindrod, British Columbia and Berlin, Germany.

Experiment in F# Minor runs from January 18 to March 15, 2020.
