In this Living Still, Tāne, the god of the forest, observes the sky through the branches and leaves of the canopy, dreaming of a myriad of possible futures. The work is constructed from a single still image and is brought to life by the slow procession through different representations using the same algorithmic abstractions which mingle to illustrate the intertwining of these possible futures.
The work was part of the Renaissance exhibition at Le Commun in Geneva in June 2022. The installation was in a darkened room designed as a place of meditation and accompanied by quadraphonic spatial sound diffusion.: an atonal composition using a sample of saxophone sound recordings as a source. These samples were stretched out in sound time and space, giving the impression of a vibratory movement extending to infinity.
