STEPHEN VITELLO - YOU ARE THE MAGIC
Artist Stephen Vitiello features a one-of-a-kind sound installation ‘You Are the Magic’, an immersive, multi-channel sound art experience. The artwork occupies the entire second floor of a former department store at City Place, inviting visitors to enter and meander freely through various areas of the space.
Site-specific sounds and images—created using various elements of the space itself—transform the inside of the deserted building into an engaging, auricular landscape. Building upon the visceral phenomenon of subliminal advertising and suggestion to the shaping of perception, each soundscape reacts to and redefines the building’s previous iteration as a shopping store. The site-specific sounds and images seek to inquire about what sounds the space remembers, and what sounds it still dreams of.
