About frequencies (synthetic variations)
100 aleatoric sound and light fragments generating three-dimensional patterns by superimposing 100 transparent laser cut acrylic panels. Taking the quantum —the smallest measurable value of energy— as his conceptual basis, the whole explore the metaphorical relationships between basic quantum physics principles applied to the audiovisual creative process: particles, probabilities, wave/particle duality and discontinuity. Structured around these notions, the audio-visual composition stems from 100 sound and light fragments that develop themselves organically, generating an ever expending but yet disruptive form in time and space.
