Transient: Impermanent Paintings

A duet of motorized piano and hyperreal projections combines human and technological elements through a system of unconventional generative algorithms.

Experience an immersive journey into artistic process, inspired by music and traditional painting techniques. This groundbreaking exhibition, originally composed as a live performance, presents a series of audiovisual paintings created by the artist in concert with generative algorithms. The exhibition employs technology as a lens to explore music for the 21st-century audience and rethink the traditional artistic techniques in the context of human-machine relationship.

Projected on a large scale, extremely high resolution hyper-realistic digital brushstrokes unfold like on canvas. Each brushstroke corresponds to a note, creating polyphonic synthetic landscapes. The same algorithms driving the hyper-realistic digital brushstrokes also materialize in the sound of piano via Yamaha Disklavier, experienced through 24-channel L-Acoustics L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology.

This exhibition aims to blur the boundaries between image and sound, presenting a series of immersive audiovisual installations along with motorized pianosTransient does not generate finite music and paintings, rather it presents the impermanence that lies behind its algorithmic potential. –Quayola
