Event Description

SonicSENSE is currently accepting Processing visualizations to be exhibited with our up-coming exhibition TRANSMUTATIONS at Gray Area Foundations of the Arts (GAFFTA) in San Francisco, CA. Submissions will be accepted throughout the duration of the exhibition, however priority will be given to sketches received by 3/15/11 for inclusion at the opening reception on March 26, 2011. Visualizations should include one or more of the following phenomena: stellar evolution, star structure, star properties, nuclear fusion, spectrum luminosity and or chemical composition of a star as an inspiration for the visualization.


TRANSMUTATIONS builds upon an electronic information ecology framework consisting of a complex series of sound sculptures, machines, video projections and sensors that employ viewers' reactions as one of the interface systems. This interactivity produces a range of soundscapes, data projections and mechanical noises that collect and distribute media into the exhibition space at GAFFTA. Programming content for TRANSMUTATIONS will consist of sound files from the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, data parsed from UCLA's research in upper atmosphere and space physics, audio from the California Library of Natural Sounds at the Oakland Museum of California, the UCSC Art & Physics Lab, MAST astronomical data archive, and on-site data from sensors placed near the gallery.


*** SUBMISSIONS for inclusion at the opening reception must be received by 3/15/11. We will continue to accept submission through May 9th. Accepted submissions will be projected on a rotating basis throughout the duration of the exhibition.
