Walter & Zoniel capture whole songs in a single synesthesic photographic image. Reflect upon the passage and perception of time and emotion through the ephemeral qualities of music and light by creating Photismograms.
Photism is a type of synesthesia in which a colourful visual sensation is produced by the sense of hearing sounds or music.
PHOTISMOGRAMS are the artists’ abstract photographic representations of whole songs and individual lyrics. Created using their hand-built Release Wave Sequencer, which illuminates sound waves, projecting them through a body of water, translating them into coloured light.
Each song is visually captured in a photographic exposure as a Photismogram, named as the piece of music or lyric that they were created from.
Lover, Lover, Lover - Leonard Cohen
I PUT A SPELL ON YOU
