envelop(e) is a group exhibition of enveloping sound and light works, simple pockets or envelopes of space that contain sound and light environments. The overall room can be likened to a secular 'church', a mood-altering space with sound chambers on the perimeter and a light environment in the centre which is a kind of luminent threshold that exists between the chambers. The room can be seen as refuge from the cold outside. And although the artists are not there to guide you to answers and enlightenment, they have created immersive worlds and alternatives to the darkness that surrounds us in our troubled time and world outside.
This show includes the works of Mick Harris (aka Lull) combining the works Moments and Continue to create an immersive sound environment, Julian Day who creates droning, often multi electronic instrument-based installations, Elizabeth Veldon interpreting the reportage of Charles Darwin's visit to Hobart town on on the HMAS 'Beagle' in 1836, Christina Kubisch who creates sound compositions based on electro-magnetism and Jason James' interactive light environment a kind of liminal space between the sounds.
