Resonant Frequency: "I" As Numerous Shifts

Visual artists Daniel Chase and Patricia Orpilla’s installation, Resonant Frequency: “I” As Numerous Shifts, departs from the pair’s last collaborative exhibition (The Length of an Arc, the Closing of a Loop), and foregoes connections of time and the passing of a day to form an alignment between sight, sound, and architecture. They are emphasizing and literalizing the synesthetic melding of sound and color to enrich each component and arrange a composition that is built up from numerous perspectival shifts. To construct this composition, they are using both sculpture and analog animations, while also imposing sprawling soundscapes. The use of projection mapping software links pitch and decibel level to the animation, and circularly, the sculptures that reference the sound through mark. If color establishes a context or a pattern in the surrounding space, a chord, much like the particularities of a memory, will appear in reprise.
