Cardiff and Miller art team of interest

The Carnie,
combines the artists’ interests in spectacle, narrative, and sculptural sound. A small children’s’ carousel is activated by a start button. It grinds slowly up to speed, while lights and music emanate from the structure and moving shadows are cast onto the walls. The musical source is deconstruced and relocated throughout the structure of the carousel so that the movement of the sound occurs horizontally as well as vertically. The results transform the carnival ride into a layered and evocative encounter.


Materials: Moving carousel with synchronized audio and light
Dimensions: 10 feet diameter, 15 feet high
Duration: 3:25 Minutes
