144

Abstract

144 explores the physical and abstract relationships between sound and image. With prints from the 144 series, digital photographs are intentionally corrupted with a series of audio edits. To do so, each image is reduced to raw data and imported as a headerless soundfile into an open-source audio-editing platform and is processed, edited and exported as an electroacoustic sound composition. Upon export, the composition is then re-assembled as a digital image, documenting the differing interpretations of sound and image within the digital spectrum. I find this treatment of data to be intriguing, especially when viewed as an analogy to the processing of data, memory etc. within the human mind. The question is whether this artificial treatment of data illustrates a parallel or a disjuncture to the treatment of data within ourselves.
