FOREST FIRE

Interactive Sound and Light Installation

Forest Fire is an artwork created around the 'Forest Fire' mathematical model that explores self-limiting properties in stochastic systems. Trees randomly grow, and fires randomly break out and spread. The viewer determines the likelihood of each event, and watches as the state of equilibrium in the system shifts.

 

Forest Fire was created in collaboration with Edward Crane, a specialist in probability, analysis, and dynamics, during my time as Artist-in-Residence with University of Bristol School of Mathematics.

SUPERGOLDEN APPROXIMATIONS

Interactive Sound and Light Installation

Supergolden Approximations is an artwork that questions how much detail is required to fully understand something. It is a piece of music that grows step-by-step, following the substitution rule associated with the supergolden ratio. Each step taken is a more detailed look at the piece, and a better approximation of the ratio. It explores how infinitely detailed objects can be described using the simplest building blocks.

 

Supergolden Approximations was created in collaboration with Felix Flicker, Henna Koivusalo, and Demi Allen, specialists in aperiodic order, fractal geometry and Diophantine approximation, during my time as Artist-in-Residence with University of Bristol School of Mathematics.

IRRATIONAL DRUMMING PATTERNS

Interactive Audiovisual Artwork

Irrational Drumming Patterns is an artwork that explores the aperiodic sequences created from three irrational numbers (golden ratio, silver ratio, tribonacci constant), and their fractal-like properties, through the medium of musical rhythm and pitch.

Irrational Drumming Patterns was created in collaboration with Felix Flicker, Henna Koivusalo, and Demi Allen, specialists in aperiodic order, fractal geometry and Diophantine approximation, during my time as Artist-in-Residence with University of Bristol School of Mathematics.

WALKS

User-created Visual Artwork

Walks is a collaborative visual artwork that brings together two separate fields of mathematics: aperiodic order and random walks. Audience members fill a blank space using paths generated from the sequences associated with irrational numbers and some well-known random walks. It demonstrates the difference between determinism, randomness, and the areas in between.

Walks was created in collaboration with mathematicians Edward Crane and Jacob Langham during my time as Artist-in-Residence with University of Bristol School of Mathematics.

BLOCKING MEASURES

Interactive Light and Sound Installation

Blocking Measures is an artwork exploring probability. It takes a simple, unpredictable event (a particle randomly moving left or right) and looks at the levels of complexity that can emerge when several of these particles are left to interact with each other. 

Blocking Measures was created in collaboration with Márton Balázs, a specialist in stochastic interacting particle systems, during my time as Artist-in-Residence with University of Bristol School of Mathematics.

BALANCE

Immersive VR Audio Installation

Balance deconstructs a musical composition, inviting listeners to move throughout an instrumental ensemble setup, hearing the music from a unique perspective.

Balance was commissioned as part of Digital Catapult and Arts Council England's 2018/19 CreativeXR scheme.
