Echo Chambers I / Echo Chambers II

Dale, Nicola (2021) Echo Chambers I / Echo Chambers II. [Artefact]

Abstract

‘Echo Chambers I and II’ are a pair of sculptures, resembling towers, scaled to the artist’s proportions. Research process: The works reflect the artist’s longstanding interest in the physical effects of ideology (in this case, visualising the notion of the ‘echo chamber’ [social or political polarisation] as a mode of segregation or imprisonment), as well as a continuing interest in sculpture as expanded drawing. They are a subset of an on-going collaboration with Prof. Adam Smyth exploring the visualisation of a grangerised edition of Ovid’s Art of Love (1813). Research insights: The sculptures extended the artist’s knowledge of material, volume and form through the exploration of lightweight, pliable materials and inspired further work around the activation of sculpture through performance. Dissemination: The work was commissioned and exhibited as part of the group exhibition ‘Remote Work’ at The Grundy, Blackpool, 27 March – 19 June 2021.
