The Distorted Perspective of Good Music (2017)

After listening to the radio for the first time in 4 years, it was very disturbing to

hear the sound of the new music. There was no individuality nor innovation with

the artists or their lyrics. That inspired me to create a sculpture about the music. 

The Distorted Perspective of Good Music was designed with about 750 blank 

CD-ROMs mounted onto 12 x 12 in. black granite tile. The blank CDs were

manually laid in a disarray to convey the idea of distortion. The concept took

form once I realized that the music that was difficult to listen to gets radio play, 

while the good music that's actually worth listening to goes unnoticed.
