TILING SESSIONS PROJECT, 2012 -
AUTOMATED GEOMETRIC TILING SYSTEM - LIVE SOUND / VIDEO
Created over a period of three years, a custom tiling system attempts to tessellate sets of geometrically defined tiles over an area. These spatial algorithms are presented as series of vivid, brutal & euphoric progressions of sound and colour. Humans are attuned to recognize patterns within a narrow time frame – too fast, and individual events appear to merge into one whole or disappear altogether, too slow and we have forgotten them by the time they repeat. The tiling system is designed to shift in speed from slowly placing individual tiles to laying hundreds per second, causing individual events to blur into continua. As one temporal structure becomes imperceptible, we become conscious of new ones, previously too slow for us to recognise.
