“There is no beginning or end to the experience, it just is. There is no direct correlation between pictures and sounds, no payoff, because the installation creates an envelope of experience, an immersion into one significant and under-appreciated aspect of place. Sound is with us, night and day. The installation doesn't re-create the aural experience of a place, it creates something bigger out of the constituent parts. The experience of sound is intensified in In thin Air to increase its potential for revelation. And that's one of the things art is supposed to do: get us to see (and hear) what we've been missing.” - Nathan Guequierre, Shepherd Express. *
