Cycle – Marla Singer & Witch – 18/3/17

Explicitly minimal/cyclic visual stimulus for Cycle

In order to convey a cyclic sense of movement, I attached various forms of layered feedback onto a rotating sphere inside another rotating sphere, each spinning at exactly 33.1/3 RPM



Here’s a few GIFs I’ve made from a collection of screenshots from recent works.

My first fairly simple GIF, made from two frames of densely layered glitchy feedback.

My next attempt contained more frames & at a faster rate but I felt lost a part of its amorphous quality in being so skittish.

My third attempt combined what I liked the most of the previous two, having a vaguely identifiable foreground central shape with a more complex background of layered digital feedback.

Ideasthesia – Art Installation – May 2015

What do we hear when we listen to sound? What could we see? What would it mean to us? How do we construct this meaning? Through experience? What could we experience? Do we experience the event itself? Or the experience alone?

The installation sought to create a synaesthetic environment through the juxtaposition of colour & sound. Through assigning groups of colour with specific sonic events, a combined aural/visual experience occurs within the audience.

Here’s an interview where I explain it a bit better.

Here’s the tester video I made prior to the installation in order to convey the idea of what it might be like. I was pretty close.
