Para Site Art Space presentsStanding on the brink between abstraction and representation, is a computational video in which footage of the sea is used as the score for a generative audio piece.
A shot of a small part ofis registered at some point of the day. The traffics at the harbour that create the wave oscillation are kept outside the frame, showing only their effects. Through an established digital protocol, the formless water within the frame functions as a dynamic print abundant in microscopic variations, which induces the audio component with a constant flow of diverse pitch and volume variations.
Although the understanding of the relations between the video and the generated sound requires close observation, the piece does not demand an awareness of the calculus made within the computation. The focal point is on the possibilities within a framed parcel of the ocean instead of the hidden computation.
