Inspired by the acoustics of intimate spaces such as churches as well as the physical effects of low frequency noise, Kate Lee Short’s auditory installations envelope the listener within unexpectedly intimate surroundings. Her work alludes to the architecture of sacred spaces, the field of neuroacoustics and a long lineage of minimalist sculpture that implicates the body.


An artist who insists on subtlety, Kate’s works alternatively delivers seductive comfort and opposing feelings of unease by working with the way we as humans subconsciously use sound to process our surroundings. In keeping with Donald Judd’s monumental minimalist interventions her bold sculptures command the entirety of space they inhabit.
