|Visual Harmonics I, copr William Cook, 2013|
Recently realized that the kind of sounds in this clip are what I hear in my head when I'm making art. I first began to hear these sounds in 1977, and from then til now is what I've been trying to reflect--a visual expression of a series of sounds.
This piece is created on a heavily textured piece of paper that I made. The severe wrinkling is a result of the drying process that I don't get how to prevent yet. Maybe I'll catch on, but maybe not. I like the fact that it's not a perfect sheet.
Those lines are ink. I'm very happy to report that it's the sizing of the pulp that makes this possible--a fact that eluded me for 25 years as I searched for the perfect paper to draw on.
Warning: the visual part of the clip is so inane that you might end up barking, or picking someones pockets--so don't watch, it's like they are controlling the horizontal [and the vertical] like in the "Outer Limits".
