'Scapes' by Squidsoup.
11. Feb - 5. Mar 11 / begins tomorrow Tenderpixel Gallery
Privateview: 10. Feb, 6-8pm
Tenderpixel is pleased to present ‘Scapes’, a new installation by media
arts collaborative Squidsoup. Created by Anthony Rowe, Gareth Bushell,
Chris Bennewith, Liam Birtles and Alexander Rishaug, ‘Scapes’ conjures
into being three-dimensional cities, landscapes and abstract
architectures purely from sound, software and light. Chimaera-like
visions of ephemeral spaces are created and destroyed in real-time. They
occupy physical space, but only fleetingly. They leave nothing behind
when they, and the sounds that spawned them, vanish.
‘Scapes’ is a new project part commissioned by Tenderpixel. Tuned
software and specifically designed sounds are used to generate a series
of abstract landscapes visualised on a bespoke room-sized 3-D grid of
lights controlled in real-time. As the sounds are played through
speakers and picked up with microphones, the visual process can be
interacted with - intercepted, corrupted and altered by visitors making
their own sounds to interfere with the original audiovisual designs.
