Elevator Music 27 features a new work by New York based artist Kamau Amu Patton. Elevator Music 27 assembles a group of analogue video monitors that present streams of geometric abstraction and video feedback with synthesized sound. The installation envelopes visitors, activating the tangible surfaces of the elevator by covering the walls and floors with elastic materials and filling the interstitial spaces of the environment with light and sound. Elevator Music 27 builds on Patton’s investigations into the electromagnetic spectrum and audible material as a social and aesthetic phenomena.
Kamau Amu Patton is an interdisciplinary artist whose work investigates the generative intersection of sound, light and electronics. He received his BA in Sociology from the the University of Pennsylvania, and his MFA from Stanford University in 2007.
