BPM

This body of work sets out to express the notion of the photograph as a sample within the digital age, using as its subject matter the synergy between music and photography as time based forms of art and performance. Both images and sound have become easy to manipulate to create new codes and messages. They have therefore become unreliable as sources of original information, at the same time providing new modes of expression. In photography time is broken down into fractions or multiples of seconds. Western music is broken down into BPM (beats per minute) and in digital recording into time based samples that are in effect a ‘snapshot’ of sound. The synchronisation of these time bases and the subsequent relationships they produce form the basis of my investigations.
