Resonances is based upon a simple presupposition – that a space occupied for a finite period of time retains the presence of that occupation well after the space itself has been ‘emptied’. This presence is a collective and individual memory; it is an energy held in the atmosphere and the material of the place. Having charged the space briefly, the slow ebb of this energy is discernable, but not precisely quantifiable. Resonances seeks to bring the afterlife of an event into the realm of the perceptible.
