Dominique Blais aims to forge links between the visual and auditory components of our environment through his sculptural, sound installations. His work points the viewer’s attention toward the visual qualities of objects that are primarily intended to produce or broadcast audio and gives shape to sounds that are on the border of imperceptible. By subtle transposition of sound and image, Blais’s work confounds expectations and opens up new possibilities for perception.
