Needle Sound

2012
Ink on watercolor paper mounted on archival board and wooden box, LP acetate duplate, record player, amplifier, speakers, wooden shelves
LP boxset: (W)7 x (D)35 x (H)35cm, 14 discs

It is an integrated record and album cover, both inside and out. The ink pen is connected to a compass, drawing on watercolor paper to create a texture resembling vinyl. Meanwhile, the sound of the pen scratching on the paper is recorded throughout the entire drawing process. The recording is then made into an acetate dubplate and housed in a storage box made from the framing of the artwork. The record is played on an automatic turntable, with a fixed needle interpreting the album cover in reverse, providing a gritty texture for other works and the whole exhibition.
