This new gallery installation by regional artist Nick Zammuto focuses on the relationship between visual, aural, and physical vibration and its ability to carry information.
Zammuto’s works often have both a visual and a sound component, creating a synesthetic experience—the impression in one sense when another is stimulated. In Laser Show, sub-sonic sounds vibrate a flexible mirror that reflects six laser-points of light. Using the phenomenon of persistence of vision, the sound waves produce the evolving shapes that appear on the gallery screen. The resulting patterns compose a sort of visual music.
