The fluid within the suspended form responds to acoustic stimuli with a vibration. Ambient sound creates visual disturbance within a constellation of bodies, tensioned in space. Sound becomes seen in an audio-visual overlap, bringing awareness to the process of transduction occurring within the system. Sensory perception and reaction become confused, as a feedback loop of sonification is triggered across the field.

Curated by Lauren Simmonds for Counihan Gallery.

Sound & Vision explores the symbiotic relationship between sound and vision through immersive sculptural installations. Three artists create work, which can be felt as an evocation of the intangible, and operate on a frequency and vibration similar to music.
Coinciding with the Brunswick Music Festival, the exhibition features optical works that explore the effects of light, movement and sound, expanding not only what is communicated visually, but what is experienced by the range of our senses.
