Banks Violette

"I definitely get a lot of ideas from music and from musicians I've worked with. In the instance of Stephen O'Malley-who plays with the band Sunn O)))-he's involved with a lot of low-frequency kind of sub-audible compositions, things that are really less auditory and more physiological. That seems like a perfect complement to the idea of sculpture-it has weight, gravity, it extends itself into space, etc. How do you take a discrete object that is placed pretty much on a pedestal and make it radiate out into the environment? We fill it up with the sound equivalent of the sculpture."
