ARTIST: Shaun Wilson
The philosopher P.F. Strawson who described, in The Individuals,
a universe called 'no space world', influences this artwork.
He created the hypothetical world based on the idea it had no
form except sound, whereby living creatures were audio signatures,
coexisting through a series of bips, noises and distortions.
I created the artwork using a series of manipulated recordings
of static electricity and blended it with other noises to produce
a universe not unlike Strawson's description. The main part
of my sound universe comes from slowed down static noises that
created a sense of spatiality, defining up and down, here and
there, too and fro.
The title of the artwork, Statica, is derived from the words
'static' and 'galactica' (as in galaxy).
