Memory Foam, 2019-2021, is a masterfully layered, time-based collaboration between celebrated photographer Lynn Silverman and the distinguished sound artist Jason Sloan. Working at the intersection of form and sound, this conceptual film fuses complex amalgamations of black and white photography sequences with a responsive, ambient score that beautifully documents light within intimate, interior domestic spaces. Assembled with acoustic elements mined from the electromagnetic fields unique to each depicted light source, Memory Foam blurs the border between private and public explorations of space and sound. This experimental film manipulates sound into a physical form thorough photography, while photography vibrates and dissolves through elements of sound, creating a visceral effect filled with mystery and tension.
