I made this golden sound circle as a gift for a friend who loves drum and bass, I used a sample of the track ‘Fire’.
Humpback Whale Song
I sampled audio from Google’s ‘Pattern Radio: Whale Songs’ which uses “artificial intelligence model on their vast collection of underwater recordings” to enable you to navigate a vast archive. You can hear some of the recording below. I visualised a small sample of the audio really just in an attempt to look at the sound from a new perspective. This was another long plot, with about 200 metres of lines drawn over 4 hours.
Below I created a variant of the system which takes the same data and creates an animation. Just for extra fun if you have the Artivive phone app, you can focus the camera on the artwork and it will create an AR version of the animation for you.

Combining DNA and the platonic solids I’m attempting to create a modern yantra. A wheel for meditation, half human, half machine.
