Electromechanical, Incidental, Controlled, Physiological, Silent Meditation
Series of 5 Giclée Prints 800 x 420mm

As part of my final year project, Stepping Away, I attended a silent retreat day during which participants refrain from speaking as a means of getting away from ‘the familiar world of words and concepts’. I made a list of the different sounds I identified during the silent meditation and recorded or downloaded the same sounds. I imported them into Logic and took screenshots of each audiofile which I then printed out and used to create vectorized representations of each sound. I then used these to produce a motion piece and a series of 5 prints.
