Bodle creates a new video and sound installation for CoCA based on two previous works, Sewing Sonification (2009) and Waveforms (2010). Both projects use data from ecosystem models along the Washington Coast to create a multimodal experience of art through scientific research. In CoCA’s 4,600 sq. ft. space, a six-channel video installation layers five dimensions of oceanographic data on large semi-transparent textile screens, while a five-channel sonification engages viewers/listeners with references to underlying systems of data.


In the adjoining window gallery, Bodle displays her Sewing Sonifications work, where sound is translated from data, then visualized and made tactile by the artist stitching the sound waves by a computer-to-embroidery machine interface. Also, a video grid of the sewing process captures the rhythm between fabric and thread.
