Abstract:

My practice formulates a modular system that generates visual compositions, which act as sketches for the execution of new visual and sound work. My project examines the intersection of remix theory, common to sound practices, and gestalt theory, common to visual practices, revealing a shared focus on the relationship between the parts and the whole. The parts are the elements that make up a visual or aural composition, and the whole is the total and complete work. Despite the commonalties between music and visual art that are revealed through my thesis research, there are fundamental differences — both spatial and temporal — in how we perceive artworks from each discipline. These differences in perception, I argue, make gestalt theory a useful tool for initiating translations of parts of visual art to sound, whereas translating the essence of the whole visual composition to a whole sound work is better achieved through intuitive processes.
