Ceramasonic Shatter

Viewers are invited to touch the copper pins of the broken replica of a 3,000 year old pot from Mesopotamia. Each pin triggers a sound which is a slowed recording of a series of replicas being dropped shattering. The different qualities of sound are caused by different clay types and firing temperatures used on the same replica form. This piece lets us enjoy the aurality of the material and form while keeping the original intact. It also explores our fascination with values related to  intactness in  ancient ceramics objects.
