528 Hz "The Love Frequency"
The frequency of waves produced by plant chlorophyll, human DNA, and even the sun: 528 Hz is the so-called “love frequency” which some believe to be a force for connecting everything in our universe. This has inevitably attracted skepticism. But whether or not it holds any truth, the idea of 528 Hz gives us a way of expressing a connection we sense between us and the world around us. 528 Hz is like art; we turn to these when words and science fail to explain what we feel. They allow us a perception of the world that makes sense to us, a way of expressing a connection we feel without fully understanding what the connection is. How do we explain why Pink Floyd’s iconic album cover featuring a prism refracting light has touched people all over the world, despite nobody knowing what it means? How do we explain that warm fuzzy feeling we feel when we connect with a song, an image, or a person? We crave ways of describing inexplicable connections, and so we rely on things like art and love frequencies to make sense of it all. This exhibition features artists who show us how our inherent longing to make connections can itself be a beautiful process, producing rich works of art that can mean nothing and anything.
