A little bit about me…

Hi! I'm Amy and I'm studying a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Communication at Cardiff School of Art and Design.
Feel free to scroll down and have a look at the work I've done for my course, maybe even leave a few comments.
Have a beautiful day!

EASTN

Today, me and Connor volunteered at the EASTN (European Art Science Technology Network) exhibition in CF24 Project and Made in Roath and learnt all about the different ways sound can be projected and experienced. There was a piece there called Skin – Air by the artist Odysseas Klissouras. The idea of the piece is to communicate rhythm through other ways than sound, which could be developed into a format of helping people with hearing disabilities to experience sound and rhythm. It also evolved from the sensation of breath on skin and forming a new format other than language to communicate. Odysseas is a strange and unique individual with very interesting ideas on life and language, as you can see on his online EASTN profile. My favourite piece was FATTORI NOMINANTI E MINUTI DETTAGLI by Simone Sims Longo, it is a twelve minute long series of sounds representing each hour of the day and the events and feelings experienced throughout the day. It is split into three sections; morning, afternoon and evening and gets progressively more dramatic and rich up until the end. I was drawn to this piece at first by the intersting tone of the piece, and then by the description by the artist; a lot of his opinions of time are similar to mine, for example he says “The idea of past, present and future is completely subjective and the passage of time a deception of the senses.” and something I’ve just found after reading it again, “The cyclicality of actions is proposed as a security for the existence.”
