An exhibition of digital images by Jake Platt shown in collaboration with excerpts from “Prophet Noir”, an album by sound artists Shawn Reed and Derek Maxwell. A series of printed color digital images and a hybridized contemporary electronic dub sound installation with headsets playing two tracks on loop present a tension between persistent unrequited desires (the “objet petit a”) and the immediacy of sound. “Objet petit a”, interjected with the ‘fermata symbol’ offers a conversation between an idea, its function, and the activation of music.
