An oversized sculpture of a sand castle tips precariously to one side. The stalagmite form, made out of mortar powder, rests on a stage in front of a blue screen curtain. A video of the sculpture is projected in a corner of the room. A second video of a mockingbird imitating a car alarm sporadically plays every few minutes projected in the perpendicular corner of the room. A low droning sound can be heard resonating in the gallery. The audio component is a collection of recordings merging together the frequency of the sun, the frequency of human vocal capacities from highest to lowest, and recordings of the interior of caves throughout the world. A video camera, monitor, and scanner capture the movements of viewers which are printed at regular intervals throughout the course of the exhibition.
