Soundship (descender 1)

  Gravity invisibly governs the movement of the world, the shape of space and the flow of time. Our project involved sending an Aeolian space craft,  Sound Ship (descender 1) into the stratosphere to the edge of space and back. Our spacecraft, produces sound as it meets the extreme elements on its journey, composing a unique sound composition based on the environmental situation at the time of flight. Air pressure, wind currents, and gravity itself produce noise from the air blown instruments that we have designed into the structure of our spacecraft. The Sound Ship (descender 1) is sent aloft under a specially …

Slow Fast Mountains (earth aroma) 2014

    Installation View: Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipie, Taiwan. Materials – timber, perspex, coal samples, aroma chemistry, electronic aroma delivery system, stereo speakers and sound. Lumps of coal found on the edge of the Wollemi wilderness were taken from the middle of a dirt road that runs through the the Newnes State Forest. Custom tables made in our workshop housed the emission of these gaseous rocks into the gallery space of the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts. Coal has little smell in and of itself, (possibly because carbon is not smelly) but these stones became a support for the  aroma of damp earth that …

The Wollemi Kirlians 2014

The following is a text written for the Kuandu Biennale extracted from a longer essay written by curator  Jasmin Stephens   David Haines is presenting an installation comprising a suite of images using the technique of Kirlian photography and a fragrance he composed in his Aroma Studio. In his sculptural assembly, Wollemi Kirlians (2014) and Slow Fast Mountains (earth aroma laboratory)(2014), Haines has configured the visual and olfactory elements to set up a recognition system intended to bring Biennale visitors into closer proximity to ‘unseen forces’ that lie within and around us. Haines’ installation exemplifies the tension between ‘the fictive …

Ozinal

  Three types of ozone aroma molecules are combined in a base of chemistry that allows for their moist breezy and electrical smelling qualities to bloom. They are housed in a handmade geodesic black paper sphere that allows for a suitable thermodynamic environment for the aroma molecules to circulate without spreading too far into the gallery. An ultrasonic speaker provides a focused sound beam into the area near to the smelling sphere that enables the viewer to smell ozone like molecules and hear the sound of the suns interaction with the earths ionosphere recorded by the artists using a VLF antennae and …

News:Haines to launch and Hinterding to perform at Douglas Kahn’s book launch

Earth Sound Earth Signal is a study of energies in aesthetics and the arts, from the birth of modern communications in the nineteenth century to the global transmissions of the present day. Douglas Kahn begins by evoking the Aeolian sphere music that Henry David Thoreau heard blowing along telegraph lines and the Aelectrosonic sounds of natural radio that Thomas Watson heard through the first telephone; he then traces the histories of science, media, music, and the arts to the 1960s and beyond. Earth Sound Earth Signal rethinks energy at a global scale, from brainwaves to outer space, through detailed discussions …

12/07/2013 – 18/08/2013 Hollow in the Paper Joyce Hinterding, Pat Brassington, David Haines, Fiona Lee, Amanda Davies, Maria Kunda, Teaching and Learning Cinema Bec Stevens CAST Hobart from the CAST website the wonderful Bec Stevens writes Hollow in the Paper* was initiated through readings of two intertwined notions proposed separately by Duchamp. The initial text included the succinct idea of a transformer to utilise slight, wasted energies – with these mostly bodily energies being, for example, “sneezes and sighs” or “the movements of fear, astonishment, boredom and anger”. And the second notion being the infra-slim, infra-thin or infra-mince. A term …

A disassembled flower 2012

  A disassembled flower 2013. Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney University.   A synthetic Jasmine aroma is composed from a historical synthetic aroma formula found in the literature and then broken down into seven of its aromatic component accords. An accord in perfumery is a particular combination of a number of materials balanced in such a way that the combination of the materials no longer smells like any of its individual parts. This is analogous perhaps to what a chord is in music. The eighth sphere in the sequence puts all seven accords back together again so that the …

Noumenon Range

This pure pigment  image is the first in a number of works that form part of a series on imaginary cartography. “Loooking towards the Noumenon Ranges, 2013 ” was first exhibited in the Konica Minolta Redlands Prize.

Joyce Hinterding

Joyce Hinterding’s work explores physical and virtual dynamics. Her practice is based on investigations into energetic forces, through custom built field recording and monitoring technologies. These explorations into acoustic and electromagnetic phenomena have produced large sculptural antenna works, experimental drawings, video and sound-producing installations and experimental audio works for performance. She often collaborates with artist David Haines to produce large scale works that explore the tension between the fictive and the phenomenal. Joyce currently lives in The Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia,  her audio work has been released by antiopic and she lectures part-time at Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney University.

The Falls of Darkness

12 October 2013   ‘The falls of darkness‘  was installed and performed for Niteworks at The Bundanon Trust in the Glen Murcutt designed Boyd Education Center. ‘The falls of darkness’ drew its source sound from 5 large graphite graphic Very Low Frequency antenna stenciled onto the large windows of the Boyd Education Center and 7 copper tube antenna pointing into the night sky. This live performance explored the electromagnetic soundscape of the surroundings and wrangled this energetic material into a composition of elaborate sonic structures.

Simple Forces

2013 Breenspace Sydney Joyce Hinterding’s exhibition, Simple Forces, considers the aesthetics of our electromagnetic environment through a series of conductive graphite drawings and installations. Hinterding approaches energy as a ‘non-human mode of expression’ that explores the four fundamental forces at the heart of existence: gravity, the strong force, the weak force and electromagnetism. What happens when an artist translates invisible forces into compositions? Hinterding’s work finds a compelling balance between physics and aesthetics, a practice immersed in the strange territory between a field and the force it is able to generate. For Hinterding, a spiral of graphite becomes a resonating structure that …

WaveForm : Induction Drawings

2012 Graphite, Indianapolis Museum of Art , Indiana, USA This exhibition presents a glimpse into recent and innovative uses of graphite. A form of crystallized carbon, graphite is a naturally occurring mineral as well as a synthetic, industrial product that can be processed and in multiple ways. It can be machined or carved, used as a powder or liquid, or handled as a lump, stick, or pencil. Graphite gathers together works that reveal the material’s potential to take a variety of forms and yield a wide range of visual effects. Graphite is accompanied by a comprehensive digital catalogue that is …
