About The Installation
Fractal Frequencies is an exhibition of paintings and sound. Each painting is a unique work and also represents a unit of sound.
The installation pattern on the South wall of the gallery is structured in a Piano Roll form using the Morse Code sequence for the word “MUSIC __ .._ … .. _._.” at the frequency A2. That was the starting point for developing this exhibition. This pattern is then augmented with additional note-paintings forming visual chords that correspond to the audio created by myself and Philippe Gerber.
This exhibition is built around the aesthetic underpinnings of Fractals and Complexity Theory and the relationships between the use of visual and auditory properties of Morse and Piano Roll code.
The ultimate task of this exhibition is to compose chaos. Like all things in Nature, the expression of complexity is uniqueness constructed with recurring patterns.
Jan Swinburne is a visual artist whose interdisciplinary practice makes use of traditional and digital media. Swinburne approaches all media from a painter’s sensibility and this drives her aesthetic. At times her work mutates into large-scale, site-sensitive installations and projects.
Known locally for her visual arts, Jan Swinburne is visible in the New York City and Brooklyn underground experimental music and video scene via her association with Alrealon Musique record label to which she signed in 2015. Her sound work has appeared through The Wire, WFMU's Strength Through Failure with Fabio, The Chill Room and Little Water Radio.
