A Series of Quiet Decisions is a set of prints and an installation documenting my examination of sound. A center piece containing a modified television set and a set of pedestal speakers acts as a physical manifestation of my proximity between two interests: listening and viewing. The three surrounding walls contain numerous individual cyanotypes drawn with sound, providing an indexical mark to my listening sessions. Considering printmaking as a form of recording, the cyanotypes are a visual playback of sonic vibrations. A Series of Quiet Decisions serves as an examination of sound in both viewing and listening opportunities.
