Hi. I’m Jamie Allen and I like to make things with my head and hands. These things often involve peoples’ relationships to creativity, technology and resources – and mostly attempt to give people new, subversive and fun ways to interact with all of these.
Description of work with field recording Binaural Architecture steals from binaural recording techniques (which capture the spatial imprint of the human head), replacing the human skull with architectural-scale objects. Microphones are symmetrically affixed to buildings, capturing a unique, large-scale, three dimensional sonic imprint. Buildings imaged so far include the Military Island U.S. Army recruitment center in Times Square.
