Sarah Fansler Lavin


Sarah Fansler Lavin

CORE Gallery, Seattle, WA - Mar 5 – 28

by Matthew Kangas

Like Seattle’s John Cage and California composers Harry Partch and Lou Harrison (who performed on instruments of their own design), Sarah Fansler Lavin is cross-fertilizing their visual and aural eccentricities with the late midcentury industrial designer Harry Bertoia, whose steel rods reverberated with pitched tones–qualifying as both music and art. Collaborating with sound artist and “gong percussionist” Stephanie Wood, Lavin sets up locales and sound cones for visitors to make their own music with the detritus of sculptural objects.
