A Beautiful Place” seeks to show ideas extracted from the research process through artistic intent and interpretation. It poses as an instrument of reproduction, in which a link between the gallery space and a local stream is made possible using microcontrollers. The dots, dashes, and lines of ink created by the machine, are directly representational of a real-time environment, with their imperfect rendition of this data being relatable to the human memory in its absence of total clarity and machine accurate repeatability, and comparable with analogue to digital conversion processes.
The works immediate intention is to reproduce and highlight how we perceive an environment and, on a more profound level, the frivolity of internalized data. By breaking down physical sensory phenomena in the environment, we are connected to a physical location outside the gallery and simultaneously provided with an example of interpretation, where in the sensations felt at the stream are not summable to definitive values and are instead understood by us based on experience, in the same way we look to understand and extrapolate meaning from art.
