+++

CHRONOTOPE draws on the acoustic properties of an exponential horn in order to bring sound from the street inside the gallery. Time and space become dialogic through this transmission of sound. As such, the work is a chronotope, a point writer Mikhail Bakhtin describes where ‘time thickens…[and] space becomes charged and responsive.’ It is through this ‘simultaneous experience’ of the chronotope that distinctions between inside and outside, past and present are undone.
