about

This album was created from a simple idea, one that I had months ago. Taking an image, and translating it between aural and visual data, editing at each step, until all original meaning and sense of purpose was destroyed.

What you choose to draw from this is your own to decide.

How an artist, in pursuit of imposing their meaning and their own definition of art and beauty, destroyed the meaning of an independent thing for their own purposes, and yet how even after all meaning as destroyed, that it has meaning precisely because it has no meaning.

Or that how an aesthetically-pleasing photo can be considered to have consistently gained more meaning despite all aesthetics being removed, divorcing the idea of beauty and significance. While the object still exists and has an entirely separate story and history, now it exists as a thing that has been destroyed, metaphorically and significantly.

Or that how two different mediums, audio and pictorial, when working in iterative processes destroy each other, spiralling into obsolescence and calamity when left in the hands of each other.

Or you may even give this no meaning at all, write it off as artistic delusion. That is your affair.

The meaning it has is the meaning you give it. And the meaning you take from it.

Choose your own meaning.

Choose what is beautiful.
