Jackson Goode


On-site event June 1st

Cacophony is an immersive sound installation that attempts to capture the inundation of modern media hosting platforms through their traversal. Sites like YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, among others, provide users with virtually boundless and aggressively curated content. Though thought of as visual platforms, sound holds arguably equal weight in the luring of users to their hosted content. Through the programmatic collection and extraction of media, sounds once bound by the frame of moving images are played out of place and time. This siphoning of audio from these clips occurs in real time and is hemmed by restrictions both from the network and media host. Simultaneously, thumbnails from the videos are retrieved, projected and refracted across the local surroundings, further emphasizing the blurred boundaries of sound. “Cacophony” serves disjointed, aural moments from the navigation of these platforms to reflect on how they vie for our attention with often overwhelming consequences.
