Art Encounters - Synapse Intarsia: An experimental audio-visual project by AVC
The 10th and final edition of Art Encounters features Synapse Intarsia, an experimental audio-visual project by AVC, a collective comprising painter Bridget Tay and musician Nazrin Ramlee.
The duo’s approach first examines the relationship and dynamics of painting and sound by distilling each into fundamental elements: process, response, frequencies and application. Synapse Intarsia is the melding and reconstruction of these rudiments expressed in two bodies of work. In one container, electronic circuits with sensors create an audio feedback in response to the different light frequencies from a video projection and visitors' movements in the space. The boundaries of painting are blurred further in the second container, with bulbous, neon forms spilling out of canvases, and into the surrounding space. Motion sensors animate the work in response to visitor’s movement patterns, bringing it to life.
