Remote SensePerformances / Sonica 2017
Remote Sense delves deep into our ancient past, tracing the story behind some of the world’s earliest art forms. Jonny Knox’s inspiration is the altered states of consciousness that ancient artists employed to visualise complex geometries and abstractions. The viewer is taken on a journey from the ancient past – through ethereal three-dimensional scans of real-life caves that were once painted in equally immersive vistas – to futuristic renderings of perspective and vanishing points. Jonny Knox’s background in music, architecture and computer graphics informs this expedition through the centuries, accompanied by Darien Brito’s haunting, restless soundtrack.
