More Pink Noise: Works by the Stella Collective
“The pink noise pattern has been found in most genres of music, the shot lengths in Hollywood films, the structure of DNA, the rise and fall of the tide, the flow of traffic and variations in the stock market. The world is basically awash in pink.” — Meghan Neal, The Many Colors of Sound, The "Atlantic"
"Pink Noise" is a metaphor for the dynamics of the Stella Collective. The pink noise sonic pattern is a mixture of all the audible frequencies playing simultaneously, where every octave has equal power. An unrelenting desire to have their voices
expressed in unison in this particular political time led the group to create an exhibition with each member contributing their own take on pink noise.
For the past nine years, the Stella Collective has been cultivating support among women in the fine art world. The members gather monthly to show and critique new work, develop practices and promote community. Rooted in photography, their individual approaches also incorporate video, installation, fiber, sound, and
sculpture in order to explore and expand the boundaries of the medium.
