Jesse Seay makes electro-mechanical sculptures of waveforms moving through objects.
Some sculptures invite people to play with them. Some make sound acoustically. She has also worked with recorded and synthesized sounds, in both stereo and multi-channel playback.
Seay's work often revolves around “surveys” and her sculptures tend to be modular with the intent of showing how the same premise can create a hundred different results.
Seay teaches sound art in the department of audio arts & acoustics, at Columbia College Chicago.
