Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, Features Works by Heather Gordon

The Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC, will present the exhibit, Hear & Now, featuring works by Heather Gordon, on view in the Allenton Gallery, from Dec. 8 through Jan. 12, 2012.

Gordon’s latest works, Hear & Now, explore issues of geography and location, memory and experience, shape and space.

The four round works included in this exhibition are investigations into auditory experience and sound byte culture. Each of these images is a binary translation from a digital recording of an event she experienced that has cultural significance.

Included with these binary rounds, are two larger paintings that have been constructed using sets of personal data along with a folding pattern to create 2D sculpture. These flat images provide the instructions for folding a sheet of material into a specific shape, which becomes the container for the data set.

Gordon is interested in visualizing how experiences become memory and occupy space, both physical and conceptual, within her own mind and the larger culturally shared understanding of the world.
