Pause proposes a language of touch thrue sound, an expression dedicated to skin and ears that breaks the frontal relationship from visitor to the work.

Five beds are suspended from steel hoops, each equipped with fourteen vibrating loudspeakers. A mechanical system of pulleys and springs links the beds and transmits the oscillation of each bed to the others. Lying down in the hammocks, the visitor is connected to an autonomous audio-tactile system. A curious patterning, Pause is a set of intimate and contrasting sensations. It produces reconsideration of the living body and, on a larger level, a reflection upon sonic and tactile distortion. Thus it brings forth a desire to explore a kind of perceptive airlock, of whether it is hearing and touch which are somehow hesitant, or whether the matter is dual. This duality, which perturbs the sensory organs, gives rise to an extra aspect of perception in the body, in which a normal sense of reality is lost to the skin and the ear and seems no longer to be fixed.
