#tinyelephants explores the relationship between still life and the fleeting moment of an auditory experience.
Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of artists including Cage, Eno, McCarty, Murakami and kid koala, this piece is grounded in documenting an actual – albeit manufactured – moment in time, and augmenting the visual experience with the inclusion of a sound-based perspective.
By exploring static imagery in a gestural way, this work explores a fascination with clarity of content, alongside conceptual sonic-art. In #tinyelephants, the nostalgic toy elephant is detached from its natural function. With a minimalistic approach, the dynamics of the urban landscape are investigated through manipulation of our assumptions of what the familiar object means to us. The sonic elements of this piece are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, intense intrapersonal moments are created by luring the viewer/listener on an unexpected sonic journey.
