The Cube


Geometric sound sculpture based on the Cube

From the series Nothing ‘is’ Immediate


Reclaimed wood, black 2.0 acrylic paint, glass beads, caster wheels, electronically triggered sounds

90cm x 90cm


According to the ancient Greek philosopher Plato c. 360 B.C. the Cube represents the element Earth.


The Cube was shown at the Bournemouth Emerging Artist Festival (BEAF) 2019. During the exhibition Spencer performed  ACTS a series of live performances creating sounds from four Himalayan singing bowls from within The Cube. As the wooden container vibrates with the resonance, viewers who enter the space will be invited to interact with the external surface of the sculpture through the sense of touch and listening.
