Narrative of Simple Forms
Gallery: Winns Gallery Walthamstow
In sound and media, made in collaboration with artist Nathan Bayliss
From a talk from Duncan Marquiss talk at the Symposium: “Out of Control” event at Wellcome Trust. He mentions the journey of the paintbrush through time, and instantly I thought “what would that sound like? How would it tell the story of the painting?”
As opposed to trying to recreate a Van Gough in sound, I took drawing back to its most simple qualities - shapes (panning on the x axis, frequency on the y axis). The result was Narrative of Simple forms
Idea was to turn the idea of drawing on it’s head, people were given the choice whether to see the visual of the “drawing” or not, and whether the sound moving in their headphones was considered a drawing in of itself.
