Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller referenced this piece on this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast. (Download the mp3 of the show, see images.) Of the Cardiff-and-Millers I have not seen, this is the one I most wish I had seen.

Storm Room, 2009
From the artists’ website:
The piece begins as the storm approaches, with no water hitting the windows, then proceeds to the incredibly loud, floor shaking climax. As the storm dissipates, the sound of someone moving and coughing in the next room is heard and then the piece starts again. This work was created in a deserted dentist’s office in a traditional Japanese house near the city of Tokamachi, Japan as part the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial 2009.
