What's that noise? Is it coming from the floorboards? Is it an over-acuteness of the senses? No, it's Christian Marclay: Sound Stories, on view through November 11. Experience Marclay's five immersive audiovisual installations that draw on the sounds and images of everyday life found on the multimedia messaging app Snapchat. Rooted in a sampling aesthetic fundamental to Marclay’s work, these installations respond to the storytelling available on Snapchat and visitors’ sounds and movements in the gallery space.
