Carrie Bodle: Wavelines

Video and Sound Installation

May 18, 2012 through July 13, 2012

Bodle has created a new video and sound installation for CoCA based on two previous works Sewing Sonification (2009) and Waveforms (2010). Both projects use data from ecosystem models along the Washington Coast to create a tangible experience of research through art. In the 4000 sq. ft. space, a six-channel video installation layers five dimensions of oceanographic data on large semi-transparent textile screens while a five-channel sonification engages viewers/listeners to consider the underlying systems of data. In the window gallery, Bodle displays her Sewing Sonifications work where sound is translated from data, then visualized and made tactile by the artist stitching the sound waves by a computer to embroidery machine interface. Also, a video grid of the sewing process captures the rhythm between fabric and thread.

Read a little about Carrie's installation (and more about CoCA's new Georgetown Gallery) in the June issue of City Arts Magazine.

The CoCA Georgetown Gallery is located in Suite 258 of Seattle Design Center at 5701 6th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108, and is open Monday through Friday 9am to 5 pm, except Memorial Day, May 28, and Independence Day, July 4.
