Interstitial articulations: reflections on audiovisual collaborative practice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


'Interstitial Articulations' is an audiovisual collaboration between visual artist Alison Clifford and composer Graeme Truslove. Artworks created within the series bring together ideas from Clifford's doctoral study that explores notions of the interstitial through new media art practice, with Truslove's acousmatic composition, which focuses on temporarility and intuitive performance in electronic music. The series explores the space between sound and image, questioning whether collaborative practice could also be seen as 'interstitial' practice.

The aim of this paper is to explore conceptual motivations and creative processes involved in the production of two works in the series, 'Substratum' (2010) and 'Palimpsest' (2011). It firstly defines the background and conceptual framework informing the collaboration, followed by a discussion of the generative methods used in creating audio and visual content, finally it concludes by critically reflecting on each work.
