Made for SHOW, The Art Pavilion, Ecology Gardens, London 2005: An old projector with dust and hairs in the gate, a wide gauge piano wire for low tones fixed to the floor and the ceiling. In this site specific installation people would enter the room and hit a button that would turn the projector on for five minutes. The wire would then be lit up casting its shadow onto the frame. As someone reached to pluck the wire they would also cast a shadow of themselves. The length of wire and its fairly loose tension created a very low tone that reverberated through the light fittings and the oscillations of the wire and its shadow continued long after the sound had dissipated.
