Works - Photos
A set of photos from my final exhibition NOISE. The exhibition was a visual exploration into sensory overload through the medium of sound and generative code. The metaphor which created the piece was looking into sound synthesis, the even consistent song of a sin wave vs the chaos of anything which can be considered noise. This represented the human brain, comparing it to an oscillator making one consistent wave or an orchestra of noise. Using RAW data to pixel outputs, acetate projections, and audio reactive code I created an immersive room to experience how I would describe sensory overload.
Designing Digital People; A Cybercollage Essay and Publication
A type set publication using my dissertation on Cyberfeminism and digital identities. The essay covers the influence of design on the imbalance of women in tech careers and the presentation of Women within the cyberspace. It then focused on the Cyberfeminist movement started by the VNS Matrix in the 90's. Using the punk and Dada aesthetic of photomontage, I cut up, and rearranged retro tech magazines to subvert and illustrate the technological scene that the VNS Matrix were responding to, and perhaps the cyberspace that we are still facing today.
A zine created for a Zine fair and eating disorder awareness week. The zine was designed to be an intriguing, pseudo-poetic object explaining what an eating disorder can be like from the inside. I used food based characters to illustrate feelings that an audience associated with their eating disorders. The zine then unfolds into a 2 colour riso-printed poster showing all the wonky little characters and the illustrated text in it's neon glory. Although the theme is dark I liked to think that the content erred on the side of comfort, rather than being triggering, creating almost a set of companions who understood what these illness's can be like.
NOISE; Pixels and Process
Alongside the exhibition in order to give rational to the otherwise abstract selection of squares I created a small publication. This book looks into the ideas and metaphors surrounding sound synthesis, and sensory overload, as well as outlining the process which took place to create the exhibition. It also provided a place to display the other pixelated outcomes which appeared through experimentation. The book is ring bound and printed single side with folded pages. The illustrations look into pixelated noise and technical drawing based on modular synthesisers, aiming to be both nerdy and intriguing.
