From Want Of Purse To Crave Of Pout

Digital Animation, 00:00:52, 2020., 2020.

Made for Barbara Thumm’s New Viewings Gallery to mark an end to the year of emptied rooms, From Want Of Purse To Crave Of Pout reflects Schweder’s current creative direction that reimagines his inflatable environments as ‘spatiosonic’ instruments. Teaming up with Los Angeles based sound artist, Geneva Skeen, and animation artist, Egmontas Geras, this work mounts microphones to the ends of what might be best described as ‘disco sacs’. As blown air turns these forms from flaccid to engorged, reverberation is produced as the distance between mics and speakers opens and closes.
