Abstract Since 1999, David Haines and Joyce Hinterding have created collaborative installations at the leading edge of art and technology. They work with precise and unapologetically beautiful combinations of subtle audio (often 5.1) and lush video (both recorded and animated). The installations sometimes include the like of kilometers of coiled copper wire, antennae or home-built electronics. Forces of technology and nature come together as an invitation to an expanded ecological engagement, with urban architecture at the edge of dissolution into floods, rolling clouds of smoke or the stratosphere. Their work explores unexpected resonance, one motivated by the “sympathetic amplification of the unseen” (Hinterding commenting on her work, Aeriology [1995]), and an unusual treatment of the images and sounds: inventive forms of high resolution, temporal distortion, and, sometimes, transduction (for example of audio signal into video signal, or vice versa). For Haines and Hinterding, this is not just a question of accuracy in representation, but a matter of bringing the unseen to attention.
