Curious about sensation and perception processes, Farah Mulla uses sensorial interfaces in an attempt to deploy a language that gives form to intangible and varied materials. Her research and art practice explores the space between sensory thresholds, where harmony isn’t present in the environment but fabricated by our cognition. Approaching the listening experience and the invisible agency of sound via multiple modes of enquiry, she experiments with sensory overlaps and materiality through different texts, sounds, and circuits. This interface becomes a site that gives the work its interactive affordance and form.
