Shawn Decker and Jan Tichy - the Difference

Teh Difference, a sound and light installation, was shown this past summer as part of the 2015 Currents New Media Festival in Santa Fe, NM. The Difference is a collaboration between light artist Jan Tichy and sound artist Shawn Decker which takes a light project work of Tichy's, originally with sculptural elements, and replaces these elements with Speakers, each with its own sound track that is synchronized with the changes and evolution of the light.  The work is highly intimate, shown in a very dark space, and with a great deal of spatial interplay between the various speakers and the constantly evolving light and darkness.  The work was created for a new media festival in Ptuj, Slovenia in the summer of 2011.  The piece may be also seen on vimeo:
