No Echo: Photo Series by Dan Holdsworth
“No Echo” is another beautiful series of photographs by Dan Holdsworth.
“The imagery of No Echo comes from within an anechoic chamber, a laboratory designed to extinguish all sound and electromagnetic emissions. These chambers were first built in the 1940s to enable the development of the military radar. Products of every type built are now tested and evaluated for the slightest vibration, or rattle to make sure that each one has its identifying frequency that does not interfere with the next product.
In addition to their significance for military and consumer R&D, anechoic chambers—often located in the Ballardian topography of new campuses, science parks and research institutes—have exerted an influence on the discourse surrounding sound as an artistic practice.”Art Photography Posted on December 18, 2014
