Meet our Grantees – White Noise Shower

So, let me lure you into the The Wayback Machine so I can introduce you to Jenne Giles‘s project, one of BRAF’s first grant recipients.

“White Noise Shower”, was interactive sculpture dealing with media in our lives. The installation was a Mild Steel cage with mixed media (hair blow dryers, lights) and broken television sets. This piece was an igloo/shower of television sets which one could step into and feel the ambient noise melt away in the canceling signal of the white noise from the television sets. An unintended consequence was feeling the energy which the televisions consumed.

A portion of the grant was in addition to her requested amount, in appreciation of her work and to facilitate exhibition of the “White Noise Shower” in other San Francisco venues.

I was flipping through a local San Francisco magazine last week, 7×7, while I was researching Jenne’s work and there was one of her signature scarves.

In the years since BRAF was one of the donors for her performance art she has become an amazing felt maker and continues to have sculpture, performance art, metal work and painting in her life. If you are interested in learning more about felting follow her Jenne’s blog.
