Yellow and Gold

Yellow and Gold, a solo project by Felecia Chizuko Carlisle, is an experiment with sound, spatiality and synesthesia. This sculptural installation addresses questions regarding the relations between sound, built space and the virtual space inside the mind. What shapes, colors, and/or images do particular sounds produce between the ears? In turn, how does the shape of a space determine audience perception of sound, light, and their own physical presence? The title, Yellow and Gold, intends to force a shift between language and meaning by associating loaded words with new formal constructs.

Felecia Chizuko Carlisle, a native Floridian, received her MFA in New Genres from San Francisco Art Institute, in 2006. She has explored a variety of contexts for her work including television in Madrid, Spain, and Moab, Utah; nightclubs such as The Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg, Germany, 1015 Folsom in San Francisco, The Honey Pot in Tampa, FL and has shown in various national and international galleries, museums and public spaces. Her research in art focuses on the complex relationship between real and virtual space and navigates the distances between the two. Her work draws from and combines multiple disciplines such as performance, installation, sound, design and architecture, sculpture and photography. Her most recent work explores dissonance through manipulations of sound, image, space, time, context and audience, highlighting process both as a means and an end. Carlisle currently maintains a studio in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami, FL.
