Self Portrait of Paul (DeMarinis)(2003) is a “self-portrait” in which the recorded voice of sonic artist Paul DeMarinis defines the image. A sequence of his pre-recorded vocal tones are received from across the room by a microphone and then decoded, illuminating the digitally stored image of DeMarinis on a grid of LED lights. The high tones transmitted by the piece represent white and low tones represent black slowly building a sensory portrait that resonates not only the physical attributes of the artist, but also his voice and personal relationship to sound.

Static Room (2003) is a two-channel video installation of an abstract composition created from manipulated static with an audio track generated directly by the same signal - the flickering, strobing image itself. The resulting space immerses the viewer in an ephemeral synesthetic environment where one can hear the image and see the sound.

Scanner -  British artist Robin Rimbaud traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways. From his early controversial work using found mobile phone conversations, through to his focus on trawling the hidden noise of the modern metropolis as the symbol of the place where hidden meanings and missed contacts emerge, his restless explorations of the experimental terrain have won him international admiration from amongst others, Bjork, Aphex Twin and Stockhausen.

Friction Sticky Rough (2003) pairs video monitors displaying computer generated three-dimensional forms with musical structures based on the interaction of sound particles. The resulting installation creates parallels between a type of sound composition called “nonstandard synthesis” and scientific principles that analyze molecular particle interaction in terms of the attributes known as “friction,” “stickiness” and “roughness.”

Shooter explores the theme of immersion in games. The visitor enters the chamber and is surrounded by the ambient sounds of a gaming arcade. In the center, a mirrored cube emits laser beams that weave a web throughout the space. Upon tripping a laser, visitors find themselves incorporated into the game, experiencing what it feels like to be the target. As with any game, you always lose.
