Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex
Sound and water form the focus of this unique audio-visual installation, in which the composer and visual artist Kathy Hinde explores how sound behaves in conjunction with vessels of water. Using sensors, networked devices and vessels specially created in Bristol University’s scientific glass workshop, Tipping Point investigates ways by which water can be moved from one vessel to another and how this can directly effect sound design. Hinde harnesses the natural resonance, vibration and acoustic properties of glass and water to create an instalation which is a work of art, a scientific demonstration and a musical instrument all in one.
