What Does the Sistine Chapel Sound Like? Interactive Sound Sculpture Brings the World To the Center of Science and Industry Museum
by Daric Gill
We’ve all seen photos of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, watched movies of the ancient Colosseum in Rome, & stared at the brush strokes in a poster of Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night”. But what do they sound like? I’m exceptionally happy to introduce, “The Memory Machine: Sound“, a motion-activated sound sculpture that plays a collection of recordings, taken during my travels to some of the world’s most interesting places.

For the next year, you can find this piece at the renowned Center of Science and Industry Museum. Let your curiosity listen along, as you go behind a waterfall in Canada, stand inside a giant clock tower in a German castle, & hear the claps of a thunderstorm in the snow-covered mountains of Switzerland.
The Quiet In “Absolute: Stillness”, New Painting From Europe
by Daric M. Gill
It might sound weird, longing for stillness after 3 years of isolation in a tiny apartment. But after a few years of small spaces, digital experiences, recycled days, and turning around in the same stimuli, there developed a vibration in my soul that amplifies to this day.
Some artists need to make artwork or they go crazy. I’m not like this. My love affair isn’t with the art-making process or even the final art object. No. My primary love for creating art is all about idea-making; the journey of curiosity and problem-solving and the adventures before the artwork has even started. The creativity that comes out of my fingers is my way of digesting the vibrancy of life. Without remarkably different narratives to explore and no tangible place in which to share them, I was an adventurer with no expedition and a storyteller with no audience. And that, for me, produced a frequency of such amplitude that it compounded and ricocheted.
“Absolute: Stillness”, is the quiet calm feeling that washed over me as I finally made my way back to the adventure. In this case, back to Europe. Below you’ll find several vignetted stories describing some big-small memories, along with a full gallery of images. Read on for more.
