Triple screening video installation

Dimensions variable, 5:00, 2011
In 2287 Hz, Henricks employs the motif of the siren (both figure of fantasy and audio device called upon in a crisis) to examine psycho-acoustic phenomena and more broadly, the question of the scientific explanation of subjective states. He questions the way these explanations may create new mythologies that then intervene in the forming of relationships between language and body.
The work is phrased through two rooms. In the first room is a wall-sized video projection. In the second room are two video monitors, a turntable, various speakers and two light bulbs perched on microphone stands. The multimedia installation in the second room creates a soundtrack for the images seen in the first room. The two spaces are separate, yet intrinsically linked.
