I recently attended an installation highlighting Lincoln’s collaboration with Revel
Audio, which showed the relationship between sound, light, and motion. Lincoln
asked me to interpret this in my own way, through photography.
Growing up in Washington, I’ve been to the Olympic Peninsula countless times,
but this photo in the HOH rainforest stands out distinctly. It is from the first roll
of medium format film I ever shot. There’s a particular album that always snaps
me back to this spot, back to this perfect click in the rainforest, and also,
somehow, all of the countless moments before that.
Whenever and however I travel, music follows. The soundtrack of each trip
inspires what I create. When I hear a new song that I like, I tend to listen to it
over and over again. Repetition in music marks a place and time. Hearing a
song again later brings that moment back. The design and sound experience of
speakers enhance the journey.
The tone of a landscape changes throughout the course of the day with
variations in light. Highlights and shadows shift, revealing different elements in
the environment. Music, like light, has the same ability to transform my mood.
That’s the power of sound.
