Exploring the concept of liminality, the ritual of transition from one state to another, the exhibition revolves around the autonomously sounding musical object — the Poet Mechanic — a hybrid instrument borne out of extreme transformations of the classic vinyl player. A traditional medium becomes an uncanny mechanical performer that interacts with resonant objects placed around it.
The pairing of sound and strange sculpture offers a ritual process that addresses the relationship between the human and the nonhuman, the mechanical and the poetic.

| Exhibition Text |

"Contact Results in Contagion" is a music, living sculpture and installation project by British artist and composer Cameron Graham.
Exploring the concept of ‘liminality’, the ritual of transition from one state to another, the exhibition revolves around the autonomously sounding musical object — the “Poet Mechanic” — a hybrid instrument borne out of extreme transformations of the classic vinyl player. A traditional medium becomes a strange almost living mechanical performer that interacts with numerous resonant objects placed around it.
The installation, combining sound, sculpture and transformed space, will take the audience through a ritual process that addresses the relationship between the human and nonhuman, the mechanical and the poetic.
