Turntable Transendence




This project is the result of my interaction with the turntable and my own impulse to stare fixedly at a silent, spinning Technics table as an idea of contemplation and meditation. I sat and watched the turntable spin for five hours in a dark atmosphere. Initially I thought to test my limits on the length of time I could focus on a spinning object. As time passed, I became less aware of my surroundings and more focused on my expanding state of consciousness. I became less aware of time and more aware of the brilliance of the lights reflecting from the turntable. It was hypnotic; I entered a deep state.
