I’ve been developing a series of headphones that identify different ways of listening. I modify portable electronic headphones as well as create acoustic headphones that utilize basic principles of physics. The title of this on-going project is “Dynamic Headphones”. Some modified headphones in the series allow listeners to share the same sounds; others allow hoarding of several sounds. The largest modified headphone I have made is called “Community Headphone”. It was exhibited at Exit Art in New York in 2003. My inspiration for acoustic headphones comes from looking at antique hearing aids and pre-radar aircraft detectors that were used to deliver sound waves to the ear without electricity. I’ve installed acoustic headphones outside in an installation called “Sound Hunting” in Beacon, New York and built a Surveyor’s Chair with Tom Mulligan for a show in Detroit. Recently, I’ve been looking more in-depth at the resonating properties of found objects. Because every object has a preferred resonating frequency, it is possible to detect auditory differences in every object you listen through. I am working on a range of acoustic filters in the form of headphones.
