Object as Energy Point

On View Friday, April 8–Sunday, August 21, 2016

The Project Space  

Object as Energy Point is an evolving and growing piece which started in 1995 – it began with a 12 x 6 inch wooden box. Created by artist Andrew Deutsch, every object in the show is a loudspeaker, a transducer, or a metaphor for a speaker. It incorporates ceramic glazed elements as metaphors for "klangfarben" and their arrangement as "klangfarbenmelodie" (tone color and tone color melody).

The installation extends beyond a symphonic-sculptural speaker display to include videos or "Electro-dynamic Drawings". The projected visual content is generated by a process in which sound is the source for the image (this is known as audio reactive art). The result is a visual electronic landscape, generated by and inter-modulated with sound.
