One evening, I walked along the banks of the Yarra River with a friend.
A sweet memory, a joyous time.
I saw the lights of the city reflected in the water.
They appeared to be dancing, but they seemed frustrated because they were held captive by the water.
In this short work, I have liberated those lights, letting them dance freely above the water.
‘The Lights of the City Danced on the Water’ is an excerpt from ’26 Suicides’.
26 Suicides is a 27 chapter, non-narrative new media art work.
**26 Suicides was initially designed to use surround sound and multi channel video to deliver an enveloping, synesthetic experience. 26 Suicides is currently being remixed as a virtual reality art experience.**
It is the personal and intimate testimony of my synesthetic life. The 26 Suicides installation uses 10 audio (surround) sound channels and 8 video channels to deliver an enveloping, synesthetic experience. The videos here on Vimeo are excerpts. They are single channel video with stereo audio, offering a taste of the installation.
Watch them if you are not afraid of dangerous modern art.
The compression on Vimeo has squished most of the goodness out of this work, if you are interested, ask me about getting the high-res version.
