Quincy Owens + Luke Crawley

The ancestral commonality between humans and chimpanzees is undeniable, with dramatic evidence exhibited in our chromosomal similarities. Prime Commonality is visually inspired by this high degree of correlation as shown in human and chimpanzee chromosomal banding patterns. The sculptures are internally lit and change colors to produce intense visual effects that take advantage of the physical interaction between colored light and translucent filters. The installation is sonically accompanied by a 14 channel surround sound art piece composed entirely of manipulated samples of both the human singing voice and chimpanzee vocalizations. Prime Commonality highlights both our similarities and differences with the shared natural world. A stereo version of the entire sound art piece can be accessed here: http://lukecrawley.bandcamp.com/album/prime-commonality
