Timothy Nohe

by rllyon2013

Timothy Nohe is a Baltimore based artist and educator working with old and new forms of electronic media. Nohe utilises the sounds of a place in order to create a tangible piece of work. He is currently an Associate Professor of Visual Arts at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, as well as Adjunct Professor at La Trobe University, in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and is often a guest lecturer. Some of his more resent works are aimed at creating a complete environment for the participant to experience.

In his project ‘142 Ways to mark the time’ (2004/2005) Nohe worked in a closed prison to recreate the sounds prisoners would hear on a day to day bases. In Eastern state penitentiary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania prisoners were hooded while being transported around the prison, sound was the only sense. Nohe recorded sounds from around the prison, i.e the creaking of hinges and walking, and played the resulting tracks through hidden speakers in the cells.
