Did we mention that we’re suckers for shit that uses light? We prolly did in a previous post. We’re also suckers for stuff that uses sound, so when an artist creates something cool that has BOTH light AND sound … well, we get kinda hot and sweaty.
“Hybrid Song” is just that sort of artwork: Wooden boxes with circular holes cut into the sides emit lights that changes and subtly flicker while a slow, heavy, bassy indie-rock drone plays. We saw it a few days ago at the Pompidou Center in Paris. The work is by London- and Berlin-based Canadian artist Angela Bulloch, and it’s part of the permanent collection currently on show in the Contemporary Art section of the museum.
