A private trouble emerged as a public issue. It was named, and became the problem of ‘negative equity’. This was identified as a widespread problem rather than a

24.900 Introduction to Linguistics (MIT)
This class will provide some answers to basic questions about the nature of human language. Throughout the course, we will be learning (in many different ways) that human language is a surprisingly intricate -- yet law-governed and fascinating mental system.

The listening room and stairwell (untitled) within the exhibition Sounding Spaces, ICC, Tokyo
There are two installations in ICC, both in non-gallery spaces, the Lounge area and Stairwell. The basic technology consists of a system of microphone, noise gate, amplifier and speakers in the room, arranged in such a way that when the microphone and loudspeaker begin to feed back the amplitude of the sound causes the noise gate to cut off the signal. The feedback notes resonate through the space accentuated by the reverberation time of the space. As the sound falls below the threshold of t
