Donald Watson / Digital Music and Sound Arts BA(Hons)

Nominated for: Nagoya University of the Arts Prize

In the middle of a large dark space two cross-line lasers circle around a pool of water, projecting their beams upwards. They randomly encounter a tangled wire structure that hangs above, which returns the light as a scattered array of brilliant red reflections. Four loudspeakers, one in each corner of the space, diffuse a dynamic range of low-frequency sounds, drones and rhythmic textures. The continuous fluctuations of unsynchronised sound and light induce a visceral experience. The installation explores continuous stochastic patterns that never repeat.
