Again Again is a multi-state* audio installation that manipulates sound through a continual process of transmission and reception. Centered around the rhythmic ticking of a clock, the installation functions as both a recorded auditory circuit and a feedback loop. Over the course of the exhibition the initial ticking will be recorded, played back, and re-recorded multiple times such that the original input is dissolved through its own accumulation and repetition. The rhythmic becomes tonal in a process that seeks transformation through reiteration.
