Robin Fox residency
1st – 7th November 2008
Robin Fox artist residency to work with David Burraston and Alan Lamb to investigate oscilloscope based visualizations of the wires and the creation of a digital interface for controlling oscilloscope laser system(s) from wire dynamics. Aside from much discussion about the non-linear complexities of the wire and its sounds, we also experimented with different surfaces to project and test laser and wire audio visualizations. Weather worn corregated iron farm buildings provided a fascinating textural projection surface (see photo), but the big breakthrough was projecting the laser light through rainfall, a natural event with complexity much like the wire sounds. These water investigations were further investigated in a 2009 residency.
