Organic Logic: Terry Berlier, Bernie Lubell and Pamela Z

The final segment in a series of three talks in conjunction with our inaugural exhibition in The Garage, centered on the theme of “organic logic.”

For this talk, the artists presented and demonstrated their sound and interactive objects.

Using a variety of materials, from cut wood, to custom electronic devices, to analog record players and their own bodies, the artists contest the performative and visceral aspects of sound and how it changes the way we view and perceive the world around us.

Terry Berlier is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is often kinetic, interactive and/or sound based and addresses themes of the environment and queer practice. Bernie Lubell makes interactive wood machines that visually construct the process of thought. Pamela Z is a composer/performer and media artist who works primarily with voice, live electronic processing, sampled sound, and video.
