8.7 miles 180 degrees (2018)
Pauline and Matthew Bickerton

mixed digital media, IMU (Inertia Measuring Device), acrylic panels, chair


This multi layered work examines visual proximity juxtaposed with aural distance.  As the chair is turned, soundscapes are revealed which encompass samples taken from 180 degrees in the north/south/east/west directions of the compass.

As an interactive work, it is a filtration of visual realism, digital tool handling,  the application of generative sounds and mathematical laws. It attempts to transmit, decode and reconstruct an ever-changing natural world that will always be part of our shared limited experience of being human.
