Artist Statement

In The Sound of Found Objects, an installation by Neill Prewitt, a group of everyday objects come alive, moving and singing in video projections synchronized across the four walls of the gallery. Rhythm, both visual and musical, animates what were once an unremarkable lot of found objects, and frees them from the semantic dead-end of their ordinary use. Both immersive and non-narrative, the installation encourages playfulness to reanimate our relationship to ordinary things.

During his visit to campus Prewitt will also lead the participatory performance Found Object Choir, in which he facilitates the audience improvising movement and sound with found objects.
