frequencies is a performative installation by George Rahi, comprising self-built robotic bells that sound compositions for each space they are placed in. The work draws on the various historical roles that bells have played; as an organizing rhythm, as a signifier of spatial and supernatural boundaries, and as a communication channel for encoded meanings. As a distributed formation, the installation creates a sculptural frame between listeners and the vibrating metals, inviting both focal and diffuse modes of listening. Combining both acoustic principles and digital & computer- controls, the experimental instruments enact a form of time-marking that suggest a mosaic of moments rather than the linear passage of time.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.
