Sound Tree II
T-Tree was inspired by the sound of electronic music. The auditory elements of T-Tree such as its drum beats and bass notes generated unique images and visual structures in my mind. By letting my hands move as the musical beats directed, and drawing the types of images evoked by the rhythm, musical/auditory rhythm and beats was transformed into the visual images.
The experiments with different 2D mediums expend to 3D images.
The works from #9 to #14 are 3D experimentations of the visual units of musical T-Tree to installation works. However, the works themselves are not the photographs of the real installation of the works in the public space; rather it is computerized images imposed on the photographs of public spaces.
The works were intended as computerized drawing on photography, creating illusion of the organic growth of the units in the public space. With these works, I am playing with the difference of the notion of photography documenting the work installed and the notion of photography as a final works which show the illusion of installation work in the public space. The public space with trees were specifically chosen to be juxtaposed with the T-Tree visual computerized structure by choosing one shape to be the basic units for the installation work. Through manipulating the images through illustrator and Photoshop, giving it shadow, putting more weight at the bottom of the structure for stability, it creates the “illusion” of the installation work placed in a public space.
