Biography

Multi-disciplinary artist exploring synaesthesia and sensory perception.

Working closely with music and sound, my work is created around the visualisation and physicalisation of engagement with audio stimulus, and reimagining painting and sensory perception as data.

Layering these textures, tones and movements onto canvas allows me to capture and manipulate the final images digitally, creating cascading colour sequences that are projected to fit their surroundings, becoming audio-synchronous visual narratives.

Project

"Immersion"

A multi-sensory and multi-disciplinary installation exploring the representation of an intangible sensory perception, combining the senses of sight, touch and hearing.

The audience will be invited into the hotel room, where they will be confronted by a 6 piece large scale painting on the far side wall, consisting of the synaesthetic translation onto canvas of 6 parts of the accompanying sound score.

On the opposite wall, there will be a projection mapped visual narrative (video piece), the digitisation and manipulation of the painting counterparts which will be sequentially synchronous with the accompanying sound score. A synthesised synaesthesia that the audience will be invited to participate in.

This installation will also invite the viewer to "feel" the sound score, with the opportunity to lay down on the bed and experience the rippling sound waves of the bass frequency. The combination of these 3 senses is my exploration into the way that sensory perception can be harnessed and used to create something new, giving a deeper understanding of the way sound-colour synaesthesia is experienced by those with the condition.

Whether the installation is successful depends on the response of the audience themselves, and whether they feel they can actually lose themselves in the "Immersion".
