Rachel Devorah is a sonic artist and feminist technologist based in Boston. Her work seeks to reveal and reframe habits of autoecholocation (locating/situating one’s self with/in sound/space).
Pregnant in the winter of 2019 with the fetus who would become her daughter, Rachel made hydrophone recordings from her cervix periodically between viability and birth. radiant drift accounts for the relative motion of her daughter and Rachel in spacialized audio as they individuated in gestation. The literal hydrophone recordings are set in counterpoint against a poetic rendering in analog electronics.
