Sonic Boom


In "Sonic Boom" (aka Threshold), his most recent installment of the Inertia Cycle, artist Jefferson Pinder initiates a spiritual journey that ends up in the very location in which it begun. This exercise in futility proves to be a rite of passage as the performance artist tests the threshold of a vintage ‘muscle car’. Accompanied by a local Brass Band, fanfare will give way as the sound of the engine echoes against the walls of a defunct historical veteran’s hospital, and spectators will be left with a meditation on tension and deliverance.
