How to Fix a Doorbell, 2008
Plywood, gravel, sound
16' x 30' x 45'
A combination of sound and sculpture, Carel has constructed minimalist forms out of wood, some of which are bound by rectangular gravel beds, evoking a Japanese garden setting fused with modernist logic and design. The accompanying sound is a layered collage built around the Australian Magpie, a bird whose song is complex and rife with variation. The sound is intimately connected with the other elements to create its own aural ecology.
