[WÆke] Sonic Refraction by Frederik de Wilde, 2009
18" x 24", digital print
[WÆke] Sonic Refraction is a computer-generated image in a programming environment called MaxMsp/Jitter using complex algorithms. The origin of the image is the sound of falling and shattering glass in a church. The sound is recorded and analyzed in the software, hence translated into an image. The work has a strong affinity with the oeuvre of Bauhaus artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946). He was a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts.
