A gas-tower video
Filming the cactus takes hyperacusis the extreme aversion and hypersensitivity to sounds as a point of departure. Originally an audio artwork produced for Radiophrenia, the video is a montage of stills that revolve around the utilitarian space of a sound recording studio. Appropriating material from sound archives, field recordings and audio media Episode #5, Filming the cactus examines the subjectivity of audio experience, manipulating and reworking the original sources to fictionalize an audio therapy machine as an autobiographical reflection of the artists own antagonism towards silence.
