'See Sound' is a generative artwork experience that creates sound sculptures based on the human voice. Participants engage with the artwork via a microphone and hardware interface. They can trigger different visual constructions within the music visualizer, based on vocal experimentation. Each construction is a sculpture unique to its creator. For me machines are my collaborators, facilitators, crutches, amplifiers, obstacles and muses in making art. With 'See Sound' I wanted to look at how increasingly sophisticated technology has influenced the artist, and how the use of technology by artists has influenced it’s evolution and application. I wanted the piece to explore the depths of this relationship and its implications, whether it is for better or worse. To question how do humans and machines collaborate? Do we feed them or do they feed us?
