I made these posters for the Algo__Rhythm event I am organising on the 27th of November at The Art School.
Algorhythm is event where specially selected artists and musicians collaborate to explore the possibilities and similarities that exist between their practice. The end result is a visual art and music installation inspired by analogue technology, the cross over between analogue and digital methods and computer hacking. The set design and concept is based around the visual communication underlying flowcharts and schematic diagrams, often used to describe music synthesis in a graphic way.
The media used in the first installation was orientated around the format of print based physical artefacts interacting with the normal settings, changing the dynamics of the space. This time I plan to use more digital means of reproduction and image making such as an analogue light installations, interactive installations using software such as Processing and Pure Data and also projection mapping. The aim is for sound, music, lights and colour to merge together in a transient and organic way.
The posters I have made show an arial view of the floor plan I will be following that is based on a schematic diagram. Each symbol or letter indicates an area that will be covered - either performance, installation/artwork or an audience participation zone. The wavy text was created by moving printed type on top of a scanner - a fairly “lo-fi” method of hacking the way in which technology is ordinarily used, often the results are quite pleasing. This process describes the general ethos and approach that the artists involved will take when creating work, expect the unexpected. These poster have been designed to be screen printed or printed on a risograph machine.
