“A significant portion of my 2012 show 'Interior Field' utilizes audio recordings from inside the 1905 McMillan Sand Filtration Site in Washington, D.C.," says Chartier. "I was able to record during a sudden, heavy rainstorm." Photo by Scott Seymour.
“For our 2009 collaboration ‘Untitled’, Linn Meyers and I installed a chevron, 15 feet deep and eight feet tall, which would act as a sound chamber and drawing surface," says Chartier. "It became a space to enclose the public, a kind of vortex, in which auditory and visual shifts happened according to the visitor’s location and movement.”
“'The S Is For…' series of photographic prints documents particularly striking acoustic locations where I have done field recordings," says Chartier. "This one was taken inside a huge Richard Serra coil sculpture in St. Louis."
