Hear the World - Pop Art Inspired Interactive Outdoor Sculpture

2013

About

Hear the World is an outdoor steel sculpture and the companion piece to Shout. Canadian artist Terence McGlade was inspired to create this work following a period of deafness in one ear. This work amplifies sound frequencies and reminds us of the rich complexities of ambient sounds. Place your ear on the narrow end of the sculpture to hear the subtle sounds of the world. The title of the work is stamped in relief on the side of the sculpture. A play on the obsolete ear trumpet, Hear the World embodies our perception of the sounds of the world we can and cannot observe. The sculpture is made of fiberglass with an epoxy resin paint finish. The tripod stand is fabricated from aluminum. Hear the World was the first in a trilogy of pieces entitled Trilogy of the Body, an artistic exploration in sculpture of the invasion of the body for surgical repair. This work is number 3 in an edition of 10.
