Abstract:

Vortex. Visual Aural Textual. One language is an interdisciplinary art form —
improvising the visual, aural and textual mediated by technology and revealing that one
language exists at their intersection.
These three separate art forms have largely been held by our culture as distinct subjects.
They have been connected in a documentary way by our most popular communications
media, film and television — yet they have less frequently been used as pure
interdisciplinary form with which to explore their own synergy. Perhaps the oldest form to
express the singularity of sound text and image is the ancient OM chant.
As a performance medium and compositional theory, Vortex is a catalyst for a deeper
level of communication than we experience with any one or two media. It is documented
by means of performance, gallery presentation, research and publication.
