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 …

SoundWave: Induction Drawings

2012 Artists Proof #1, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne The SoundWave: Induction drawings were exhibited at MUMA (Monash University of modern Art) for the exhibition “Artists proof #1. These sound producing induction drawings take technical liberties around the notion an energy scavenging and storing energy. for example SoundWave: Induction drawing1 Capacitor Wave investigates the sonic possibilities for a series of Wave form resonating elements inside a wave form loop and is connected to a graphic capacitor.

Loops and Fields: Series 4

2010 Freehand, Heide Museum of Contemporary Art, Melbourne,  2011  Invisible fields, Geographies of Radio Waves, Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona, Spain       http://www.heide.com.au/exhibitions/past/page/3/exhibition/freehand/edate/2010-11-25/eid/177 Catalogue Entry  for Freehand: recent Australian drawing Loops and Fields,  is a collection of drawings that resonate sympathetically to the electromagnetic fields within the gallery. These graphite drawings function as graphic antennas and explore the qualities and inherent nature of a combination of hand-drawn and mathematically generated forms. Delving into algorithmic structures, fractals and the chaotic nature of the hand drawn line, these drawings are an exploration of conductive materials and the possibilities for drawing electronic …

Aura

2009    Aura, Breenspace, Sydney, 2010  Love of Diagrams, PICA (Perth Institute for contemporary Art) WA 2010, Opening Lines, Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces , Melbourne, 2010 No Right Turn, Penrith Regional Gallery This suite of drawings resonates sympathetically to the electromagnetic fields within the gallery and engages with the possibilities for evidencing the local energetic environment through gold and graphite graphic interpretations of mathematical algorithms that behave like antennas. This work expands the conceptual limits of representation by activating the functional properties in the image both as a material entity and as a form and opens up possibilities for working with …

The Oscillators

1995 – Sound In Space: Australian Sound Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. Comprised of conventional art materials pencil (graphite), paper and silver leaf these drawings are functioning interpretations of the circuit diagram of the electronic device the phase shift oscillator. Electricity generated by the Solar panel is fed directly into the drawing and the pencil marks, silver and paper are used to conduct, impede and collect electricity. All conventional electronic components except the  transistor and a piezo speakers have been replaced by the graphite drawings, connecting wires and silver leaf. The recording of this installation titled “the Oscillators” and …
