A house is like a mind that holds everything is a 5-channel immersive sound installation that delves into the relationship between the mind and the house as metaphorical dwellings. In a constructed room that reads as a simple domestic residence, the artist’s voice, reading from various classical texts, emanates from multiple points in the room, becoming almost unintelligible at times as the recordings are layered on top of one another. Drawing on myth, philosophy, and global conflict, AAC Resident Artist Dawn Whitmore invites participants to follow the work’s soundscape through time, moving from uncertainty to clarity.
