Deteriorating Rhythm

Throughout the collaborative project, Marjo and I have decided to produce pieces that reflect both the turning points in our discussions and defining moments in the projects' development. 

Shaping time – distorting space

According to Bergson's The Creative Mind (1946) any attempt to measure time – to fragment and create static moments – is to falsify what can only be sensed intuitively. With this in mind, the notions of 'past, present and future' seem redundant – therefore a re-writing of a current Uni brief is definitely in order.

I began a collaboration with Marjo Loponen a week or so ago. We're considering how to visually articulate the perception of time through experiments with multi-faceted perspectives – already the project is causing me to see the world in triangles.

In developing the Tangible time project I altered the frequency of my alarm clock to match a human heartbeat whilst rested and during high-stress. The result of this is inaudible to the human ear without amplification however FFT can produce these spectrums to be experienced visually.

The Mannerist painters of 16th century Italy are known for using complex visual allegories and rejecting the classical ideals of Renaissance art, including the usage of arbitrary colour choices. This transformation of Venus, Cupid, Folly & Time (Bronzino, 1540–50) retells the incestuous kiss section of the piece through the colour modal of traditional print specifications – reducing the emotive visual language to the measures of ink required for expression.

Sensing Time

It can be argued that 'Time' exists only the mind. However, for a current project I'm exploring time 
as a sensory alert system. These examples show a non-linear audio wave of my alarm-clock formed with salt, coffee and chili powder. 

What if your morning alarm woke you with a sneeze? 

This is just the start of the project – interesting times ahead.
