Induction, 1996
Induction, 1996, Installation view, Santa Monica Museum of Art

Induction, a video-and-sound installation created by the collaborative team of Bender and Funicelli, addressed the viewer’s interpretation of sensory-based information (images, spoken texts, and music) as it informs, and is informed by, the viewer’s own memories, dreams, fantasies, and history. This work, employing as a metaphor the medieval musical technique of organum–whereby a fundamental tune is distorted by the dissonant polyphony laid over it–challenged the notion that a coherent reality can exist in a time and a culture characterized by contradiction and chaos.
