“I work with sound in an attempt to make space for myself. By being a part of an open feedback system of movement and communication through ambient and intentional sounds, I expose how we are both controlling and controlled by sonic information.” (Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon)

“When asked to create a sound piece for Frame, all I could imagine was how to escape the noise of the fair while still being seen. Everyone told me the only way was with headphones.  But we don’t just listen with our ears, we listen with our whole bodies.  This piece involves large sound absorbing materials to soften the noise; and a four-channel sound sculpture that separates and uses the ambient noise of the fair, allowing you to navigate an alternative reality within the existing soundscape.” (Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon)
