Sound and Image Resonance, Fall 2012
Instructor: Christopher Willits
Assignment: Create a 3-minute sound + image piece that highlights dissonance or consonance in the sound/image relationship.
Solution: This piece was inspired by the unusual MRI scans of Andy Ellison, a technologist at Boston University Medical School. In his spare time in the lab, Ellison takes MRI scans of fruits and vegetables, resulting in these spectacular animated GIFs. You can see the original scans on his website, Inside Insides insideinsides.blogspot.com/.
Ellison's scans are beautiful and also quite mysterious. My intent with this video was to use sound to make Ellison's scans even more inscrutable.
