Portfolio > Pomegranates/Rumman

Sound and ceramics installation

"I remember,
the sounds of seeds falling into the bowl
like rain on windows
they scatter on the table
split the fruit apart
tear the tough skin
revealing bright red seeds in the sections
shiny and tightly packed
underneath thin white yellow waxy skin

The multichannel sound shifts around the space, moving through the speakers.
