About the Event

In her exhibition Static Drift, Meghan Judge explores the sonic potentials that static has for opening perceptions. During a voyage across the Indian Ocean, Judge noted how, as radio signal began to fade away, elemental weathering activity rearranged sailors’ orientation toward the sea. Judge works between terra and ocean, locating relations that, in her words, “…do not represent an end of communication, but rather an opening toward perceptibility...”

Featuring sonic compositions and sculptures, the exhibition’s works form an immersive activation of weathering-space. Judge invites the public to drift in this space and to sense into the noisy edges where ocean and terra meet.

The exhibition forms part of the artist’s submission towards a practice-based PhD at the Wits School of Arts. Static Drift will be on show from October 12 - November 6.
