Abstract

'Nightfields' explores how motion derived from natural forces can be used to propagate relationships between audio and visual elements in an artwork.
The piece is based on motion tracking data, derived from unseen video footage of a group of leaves blowing in the wind. These natural data profiles are then used to both animate visual elements and trigger audio events, resulting in an audiovisual texture that is continually transforming in a subtle way.
Although non-representational, the work aims at bringing an evocative quality to abstract imagery, as suggested by the title.
