Documentation of Installation Work by Jamy Sheridan

Each of the works documented here consists of two major components. The visual component is a real-time computer animation projected onto a bed of white sand on the floor in a visually and acoustically isolated space. The audio component, which was generated in real-time but is usually presented on a CD, is synthesized music created by John Dunn and driven by DNA and protein data.  In each work, the audio and visual components relate to each other structurally and conceptually.  The Garden of Initial Conditions is ‘written’ in Wonk, a real-time, direct manipulation performance language for artists.  Wonk was designed by John Dunn with Jamy Sheridan.  All the works shown here were created using software written by John Dunn.  The still images shown here are time exposures  taken at various intervals with the animation paused.
