projections in the main studio space:
This film is a new experimental piece that looks to visualise field recordings. The sound of rain and thunder is brought into the Processing environment and the sounds are visualised in a number of different ways and then combined into one film.
This work uses the Processing environment to save audio data to text files. It then loads this text file, prepares and displays it.
Data conversion is the conversion of computer data from one format to another. Throughout a computer environment, data is encoded in a variety of ways. Data conversions may as simple as the conversion of a text file from one character encoding system to another; or more complex, such as the conversion of office file formats, or the conversion of image and audio file formats.
This is a film I’ve made about travelling with double vision, a condition I’ve had for a while now.
My left eye diverges from the right eye, which means that my brain “sees” double, or what they call ‘diplopia’. As my eyes no longer work together they see different images and my brain cannot comprehend the resulting information. This has led me to see things that aren’t there, resulting in my tripping over and walking into objects.
The soundtrack is constructed from sounds I recorded inside the car; driving along different tarmac textures. I have also used a recording in a lay-by on the A30. These sounds have been mixed and heavily treated.

This live experimental work was a very rough and ready exploration of architecture and though it was missing some vital elements, it was a rich and rewarding experience for the two artists. It has allowed them to try out possible ideas and explore the delivery mechanisms that can be used in a space like this in any disused building.
