In the right channels of a sound system
a man is counting in his native language. Water is bucketed over him while he runs on the spot. He sounds wet and consumed, increasingly illegible. From the left channel, the clean thwack of a golf club relentlessly, obliviously drives balls.
The two-channel sound installation is presented on three white Bose FreeSpace speakers which are designed to invisibly blend in with their environment, to generate affect from no discernible source.
