Mauro Altamura


photography, 14X11", 2001

From June 2000 through September 2001 I re-photographed anonymous faces in the background of the main subject(s) of published photographs in the Friday NY Times. From the negatives I have cropped and enlarged one single face, creating a portrait. These non-identified people have been in crowds, or passing by as a photo-journalist took a picture. They have neither consented to nor perhaps even been aware that their photograph has been taken and subsequently published. They are then again used in my installation, singled out from the crowd; yet they are unspecific, often barely identifiable. The subject has been unknowingly recorded, their face made public, a mock surveillance twice removed from the reality of any event.

"Untitled Speaker"

modified speaker, wiring, audio CD

1X1', 2004

A sound sculpture that doesn't really make any noise. 12" woofer painted swimming-pool turquoise point upward and filled with water. A 79 minute composition of low frequency sine tones drives them via high-powered audio amplifiers. Patterns generated by the combinations of sound frequencies develop on the surface of the water, making static and moving shapes from fine stars to the coarse chop of a pool, to small storms hurling drops into the air. Most of the sound is inaudible -- it is music made to be seen, not heard.
