Ongoing visual/sonic research into notions of surface and immersive sound and the relationship between.
Surface II is an experimental moving image work focused upon several concepts. In one sense it is a visual experimental journey that discovers and plays with the notions of the celluloid surface, the ways specifically it can be physically manipulated. In another sense it is a study of image and sound, every visual detail is paired with its own unique sound sample which creates an almost hypomanic sensation where even the smallest detail takes on a new sense. The work also questions decay in a literal sense but also beyond the surface, the degradation of a medium and a time.
