DIMMER SWITCH

DIMMER SWITCH is a performance for sound and light which takes advantage of the inability of compact fluorescent light bulbs to properly dim. Guitar cables are placed near and inside of the flickering fluorescent coils to sonify the electrical bursts. The dimmer switches sculpt the pulsing and shrieking amplification of the malfunctioning bulbs, finding frequencies and rhythm within the chaos.
