hoopSnake is a shifting collaborative company of artists, musicians, and physicists organized by artist Greg Pond that generates new media installations and performances. The first hoopSnake project was a live sound performance at the Hunter Museum of Art in April of 2009. Reflected Territories is comprised of two sound sculptures that work in concert with one another. One is a fractal system of stainless steel pyramids that make up a complex series of sound reflectors and baffles. The other is wooden sound sculpture. The pyramid generates a diffuse reflection of sound from iterative surfaces and boundaries to create complex sound fields that repeatedly reform the original sound and affect the perception of space in the spaces where it sits. The second sculpture collects the sounds reflected by the pyramid and reprocesses them into its own set of complimentary noise.

Contributors to hoopSnake for this exhibition are Dr Randolph Peterson, Nels Oscar, Tyler Cooney, Stanislav Veselovskyi, Greg Pond.

The name hoopSnake is derived from the dream of the chemist Friedrich August Kekulé (1829 ­ 1896) that led him to the discovery of the benzene ring. The pursuit of new aesthetic experience via the intermingling of the rational principles of scientific inquiry with the irrational realms of dreams and imagination are the guideposts for the group.
