Alex McKenzie: Carousel

Sunday, April 29, 2018

A word repeated 100 times breaks down phonetically. As auditory perception changes, meaning is separated and a word as simple as “dog” can sound foreign. This semantic satiation acknowledges that repetition is not always sameness but can be understood as a form of change. Much of my practice focuses on this tension. Through the creation of sound pieces, screensavers, physical performances, and other media my work investigates the structures of repetition and change in memetic culture, information dissemination, and systems as a whole. —Alex McKenzie
