Geometry of War
Maryam Ghayedikarimi
13 April – 19 June 2016

Geometry of War, a new work by Maryam Ghayedikarimi for AGYU Vitrines, borrows directly from the architecture of the sound structures used as military air defense tools in World War I & II. Before the invention of radars, devices were fabricated to detect the sound of the enemy’s aircrafts. The acoustic instruments ranged in size from wearable headsets to large constructions. Ghayedikarimi builds facsimiles of these early surveillance and detection equipment as studies of form, sound, and texture. The sculptural forms are listening from the vitrines…

Maryam Ghayedikarimi is a PhD Candidate in Visual Arts at York University. She has a Master’s in Architecture from the University of Waterloo and has worked with such firms as SMV Architects, Lindy Consulting Limited, and KPMB Architects.
