Three channel video installation
with speakers and guitar amps
Dimensions variable, 16:00, 2008
The Sirens is a sound and video installation incorporating 16mm and Super8 film, guitar amps and a slide show. In this work, Henricks continues to explore themes that are ever-present in his practice: sound and music, text, repetition and the body. A hand places the needle on the record, a UV meter quivers, acupuncture needles seem to tremble and water ripples rhythmically from sound vibrations. Henricks makes sound visible, revealing and looking at its effects and interactions; speakers pulse at low frequencies and guitars tremble under knives making sounds and sensations that linger in and outside of the physical.
