Transition Series

The Transition works are a series in which the artist has inverted amplifiers and speakers by emptying out their inside components and re-inserted the parts as visual components onto cotton and linen canvases. The wires puncture in and out of the canvas to create a visual composition. Connected to power, each canvas retains their functional role with a set sound and volume level.
