Man Bartlett, ‘The Akasha Model/Transmitters’, 2016, Bert Green Fine Art

The Akasha Model is a project that includes a sound installation and sculptural objects. The artist recorded his own brain waves during a series of different thought exercises in an attempt to create an archetypical record of all sentient thought. Man Bartlett's work is a mixture of traditional media, digital media, and performance, all of which emphasize the philosophical difference between perceptual knowledge and reality and how this manifests in the interaction of technology and culture. Bartlett is concerned with action and repetition and "the manipulation of the relationship of a medium to itself."

This exhibition is an immersive installation in our Project Room. The recording is a 24 minute loop, broadcast wirelessly to headphones via an FM transmitter in the gallery. The entire installation includes sculptural ears, headphones, and transmitting and receiving equipment.

Signature: Measurement is for a single ear. The ears are sold as a pair mounted to a backing board, which can be framed. Board is signed and dated by the artist, and is 9 x 12"
