LAST CHANCE Artist’s Rooms: Samson Young
Samson Young’s Artist’s Room features a new, site-specific installation titled Reasonable Music – an interactive environment consisting of (text as) sound and (text as) image. The components within this environment are derived from the processing of translating the Daoist text Daodejing. Insights from computational analysis on the text’s formal features are filtered through human intuition to generate a network of sonic and visual objects. As formal features progress along a chain of events, they are transformed, distorted, and take on new features.
Reasonable Music has been commissioned by Art Jameel in collaboration with the Kochi-Muziris Biennale and Burger Collection. Both venues will show an iteration of the work.
Jameel’s Artists Rooms series gives a single gallery over to a solo exhibition by influential, innovative artists, with a particular focus on practitioners from the Middle East, Asia and Africa. These capsule shows are collaborative and curated in dialogue with the artist.
