Description
Artist and musician David Pohl's environment turns old record players (picked up in secondhand stores) into a series of expressive altars, whose insistent sounds evoke the repetitive mantras of eastern spirituality. Other elements, often obsessively worked, sustain the concept of both universal and private religious experience.
