'fractal shale' was developed by Kynan Tan under the guidance of renowned Australian audio-visual artist, Robin Fox. The work takes the synaesthetic relationships found in Fox’s work for laser and oscilloscope and blends this with computer-generated imagery, processed video footage and sudden bursts of colour – resulting in an immersive, synaesthetic assault on the senses.
The work draws on sets of data, obtained by monitoring brain activity, as a means to control and generate video and audio, and in doing so questions the way the human brain perceives transmissions of light and sound into thought and experience.
By using a combination of computer-generated 3d geometry, visualisations of sound and video footage of natural phenomena, the space between the real (physical objects) and imaginary (computer-generated visuals) is investigated. This is paired with computer generated audio in a highly structured, symbiotic structure that attempts to expand upon the audience’s perception of time and space. fractal shale is the second work in Tan’s audio-visual series investigating consciousness and perception, after the first work consciousness premiered in May 2012 at Club Zho 99.
In 2012, Kynan Tan is being mentored by Robin Fox through JUMP, the Australia Council’s national mentoring program for young and emerging artists. In Western Australia, JUMP is delivered by Propel Youth Arts WA and receives additional funding through the Government of Western Australia Department of Culture and the Arts. www.jumpmentoring.com.au
