Evaporative images

 

Like a mass of condensed water vapor floating in the atmosphere, sound hangs in the air.

Paintings are static and music is dynamic. While the representations of the undulations in these paintings are still, we invite the audience to imagine the dynamic and constant transformation of clouds and water ripples as the sound atmospherically evolves around them.

“Art is the game of extending our ‘shape of real’ without the necessity of present, practical affirmation.”[1]

Rather than the audience merely looking into pictorial boxes as an external examiner, we invite the audience to experience the visual images as a context for extending their ‘shape of real’ through synthesis of their memories of the shapes of real. The dual installation of sound and images is intended to involve the audience in multiple modes of participation, stimulating both visual and auditory senses thereby creating an environment where immersion is possible.
