The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is proud to announce the solo exhibition Tethered Oscillator by interdisciplinary artist Leticia Bajuyo, on view from October 24 to January 26, 2021. 


Leticia Bajuyo is known for creating large-scale installations that weave together thousands of shiny CDs or DVDs into immense glittery forms. In Tethered Oscillator, the artist will suspend two horn-shaped sculptures in the gallery. Each sculpture functions as a theremin, an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact, that will be able to be played by visitors.


Bajuyo often draws inspiration from science for her art, and for this exhibition, she explores the concept of coupled oscillators. In physics, coupled oscillators are oscillators connected in such a way that energy can be transferred between them. The artist is creating a space for visitors to attempt to activate both her sculptures at once and thus become the spring-like force connecting the two forms.


The discarded CDs and DVDs that make up the sculpture serve as a reminder of yesterday’s songs, movies, memories, instructional videos, and other recorded media. As compact discs are no longer a primary means of storing information, their use carries an air of nostalgia.
