The Art of Noise
Chih Ming Fan
Immersive audiovisual space. 2 large projections, sound, plastic film base

Chance and non-chance: the Taiwanese artist and designer Chih Ming Fan plays with coincidence and the expectations of the audience, characteristics of Cage’s composition. Soundscapes and noises, interwoven into an abstract listening experience, appear to randomly bring forth visualizations of wave currents and acoustic sensations. Yet there is a calculation behind the randomness: each tone is deliberate, every animated image-particle is placed. The supposed relationship between cause and effect is overridden.
