Sound and Documentary in Cardiff and Miller's Pandemonium


Welcome to the digital companion to my master's thesis "Sound and Documentary in Cardiff and Miller's Pandemonium completed spring 2015 in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Maryland, College Park. At the heart of my project is Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller's site-specific sound installation - Pandemonium - which occupied the Eastern State Penitentiary historic site in Philadelphia from 2005 through 2007. I developed this digital version of the project on Scalar primarily because sound art deserves a format suited to listening as well as looking and reading. My aim is to offer an accessible, informal, and flexible experience of my research. This site is an experiment - an active and ongoing one - that will evolve in dialogue with users. I welcome your questions, suggestions, and critical feedback
