Brian and Ryan - Sound Collection Helemts

Brian and Ryan


Sound Collection Helmets
The installation, performance and intervention-based works of Brian Black and Ryan Bulis have helped the duo develop the persona known as Brian and Ryan. Their Sound Collection Helmets are a literal means to collect the sounds of a city. For Soundpedro, the helmets will collect ambient sound and conversations from the show. These recordings will be available to the other artists to customize. And it is their intention to continue this project across several cities to create a large database of conversations mixed with the sound of the city that can distinctively represent each of these places.

In a collaboration that has spanned over a decade, Brian Black and Ryan Bulis have developed the team-like persona known as Brian and Ryan. This artistic duo appropriates iconic activities and forms that challenge preconceptions of communication, masculinity, and identity. 

Their installation-based work is site specific and focuses on engaging the audience with familiar forms while making alterations in an inquisitive and playful manner. These alterations transforms spaces and lead viewers to new discoveries about how to communicate within those spaces.
