Description

Glass Elevator by Stephan Moore

In the vestibule
January 18 – Summer 2015

Glass Elevator is a sound installation for the glass-walled vestibule at the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, NY. As a visitor passes through the space, a quiet droning sound can be heard, which could easily be mistaken for the sound of typical building systems. When all of the doors are again closed, the space is suddenly transported, by sound, to another location — an example of audio cinema, or, in R. Murray Schafer’s term, schizophonia. Whether anyone lingers in the space to experience these sounds is another matter — the piece hides itself from all but the most curious. The title refers to the fictional mode of transportation used by the eccentric confection magnate Willy Wonka in novels by Roald Dahl: a transparent elevator capable of traveling in any direction, and even into outer space.
