Camera Lucida

leave a comment »

Camera Lucida by Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand is a collaborative project that lies in the intersection of art and science. It records on photographic plates the sound frequencies that are emitted by specific chemical reactions. It is part”sonic observatory” and part interactive installation, where visitors can make and “shape sounds while they move through space”.

This experiment I think represents where new media, even digital art will eventually go; it is inherent in the merging of art and technology that art practice (now becoming a research-based practice) will involve scientific explorations. As artists explore different ways to represent and create platforms for their ideas, we will inevitably be more experimental in our techniques, and the tools of science that investigate natural phenomena will be our tools.
