Throughout her career, Camille Norment has investigated what she terms cultural psychoacoustics: the relationships and contingencies between sound, culture, and perception. Building on her commission for Dia Chelsea, Plexus (2022), this artist’s book seeks formally and conceptually to imbue a sonic sensibility and extend understandings of the artist’s practice.
On the occasion of the publication’s launch, Norment will be in dialogue with artists Seth Cluett and James Hoff about the interrelations of sound (art) and print media, as well as how the book form can reflect time-based work. As an extension of Plexus, Cluett and Hoff collaborated with Norment on “Context and Constellations,” an iterative and interactive library of text and audio with which visitors are invited to engage in Dia Chelsea’s program space. Extending this collaborative mode to a live conversation, the artists will also speak to how the library’s materials are accrued and how text and distributed media can provide new and critical context to the experience of listening.
This program is presented as part of The 2022 NY Art Book Fair Classroom. Hosted by Dia Art Foundation, 537 W. 22 Street, The Classroom is a long-running program that provides space for artists, writers, designers, and publishers to highlight new releases and fosters dialogue around important themes in artists’ book publishing. The program is organized in collaboration with David Senior, Director of Library & Archives at SFMOMA. The 2022 NYABF is taking place October 13–16 at 548 W. 22nd St.
Seth Cluett is a composer, visual artist, and writer. He has received grants from Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Fund and Meet the Composer, and his work has been presented internationally at venues such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; MoMA PS1, New York; and CONTEXT Art Miami. Cluett is artist-in-residence at Nokia Bell Labs in Holmdel, New Jersey, and director of the Computer Music Center at Columbia University, New York, where he is on the faculty of music composition and also serves as assistant director of the school’s Sound Art MFA program.
James Hoff is an artist living in Brooklyn, New York. His work encompasses a variety of media, including painting, sound, and performance, as well as a publishing practice with the organization Primary Information, which he co-founded. Recently, his work has focused on language and ambient media at the intersection of developing technologies and networked communication in relation to social, political, and sonic space. He has exhibited work and performed at cultural organizations throughout North America and Europe.
Camille Norment was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1970. She received a BA in comparative literature and art history from the University of Michigan in 1992. At New York University, she received an MFA in 1994 and an MA in Interactive Telecommunications in 1998. She attended the Whitney Independent Study Program in 1994–95. Norment’s practice is informed by the sonic and spans drawing, installation, performance, sculpture, sound, and video. Her work has recently been shown in solo exhibitions at Oslo Kunstforening, Norway; Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago; and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin.

Award-winning poet and performer Jon Sands partners with acclaimed jazz trumpeter Riley Mulherkar for an intimate collaboration in and around Dia Chelsea. With words and musical notes as raw material, their one-hour set challenges the lines between public and private. Using the city itself, with all of its movement and energy, as a backdrop, the artists aim to build a new “emotional history”—to use Sands’s term—that is, a living, moment-to-moment archive of how it feels in the here and now.
