Douglas Kahn

The work Earthstar by David Haines and Joyce Hinterding is an exploration of electromagnetic and vibrational energy. Douglas Kahn’s talk will approach the work by refracting it through electrical storms in the Blue Mountains near Sydney. Earthstar’s objects and images invoke frequencies in sensory, physical and biophysical registers. It is tuned through hydrogen to a single wavelength of the Sun, through copper to terrestrial radio influenced by solar winds, and through a vibratory theory of aroma to a memory theatre of ozone. Earthstar proposes that when one ventures out into the elements there are three weathers – solar, space and terrestrial.
