In Physical exaggerations in controlled dream space – a new performative sound installation designed specifically for projects+gallery – Kevin Harris attempts to create a synthetic physical environment where approximations of matter can be achieved. By using exaggerated notions of mass, inertia and gravity, the piece uses sound to simulate invisible physical bodies accelerated within a space.
