Sabisha Friedberg explores the notion of levitation through a series of forms, both visual and aural. Drawing upon arcane sciences, contemporary non-linear theory, and ELF/subwoofer culture, the artist presents a personal metaphysical landscape addressing the notions of suspension, tension, and gravitational defiance.
The elements are a combination of interpreted archaic lore, wry manifold coding, and the metaphor of a ‘hovering’ in acoustic space. Through her installation, Friedberg introduces new and antiquated technologies, reverse processes using analogue and digital sources, and the application of linear calculations imbued with sacred number systems. She references both the esoteric and scientific aspects of telekinesis, with the premise that sound as vibration – beginning with thought – has a “certain power of the unseen.”*
Presented in triads of a devised language, the texts, visuals and audio works evolve in a phasic manner in both action and form over the course of the exhibition period.
