enter "Biocity" online version: 2003:
Audio visual relationships between art and science. There are 24 artworks in the series built into a unique software system. They are available as a touch screen edition for exhibition and sale.
Inspired by the idea of the city being a coded entity. These paintings map out emergent city spaces. Each one in the series has different behaviours which change the sounds over time or generate and evolve new images, ie shapes and colours. The city experience is a web of connected networks and multi layered threaded paths that condition us to the emotional state of the city space. In essence, the city fabric is a giant multi user multi data sphere. The patterns we make, the forces we weave, are all being networked into retrievable data structures that can be re-imagined and sourced for information. These patterns all disclose new ways of seeing the world.
