Turbulence II

Research output: Non-traditional research outputOther Creative work


Work format: Real time internet data driven audio-visual installation work.

Turbulence II makes use of real time weather data to drive a gallery based audio-visual installation work. The visual materials are non-representational and consist of heavily abstracted grid line structures that stretch across 3 video monitors as an abstract panorama of colour fields. The colour fields and audio materials are activated by real time data, polled from weather stations surrounding the gallery, deploying solar radiation levels, temperature, visibility, and momentary wind speed as the primary elements for transformation. It asks the questions

What strategies lead to a feeling of context responsiveness in an artwork where the forces acting upon the artwork are largely invisible?

What aspects of the compositional system most promote the feeling of ‘liveness’?

What elements of an artwork can be successfully given over to real-time data for ‘decisions’ around content?
