Enigmatica is a synesthetic video sculpture consisting of ten suspended concentric frames illuminated by a sequence of geometric animations. The animated patterns alternate from being mapped to each individual frame to blending across the entire sculpture creating an illusionary dimensional shift that explores the distinction between the digital and physical elements of the work. As the sequence progresses, the projected imagery builds to a rapid rhythmic choreography that pulses back and forth across the sculpture. The animated textures and sound compositions are all developed in cohesion allowing the vision and sound to fuse, interact and blend. The juxtaposition of the minimalistic design of the forms and its abstract texturisation and sound score all culminate in a highly atypical sensory environment.
The work has evolved through a variety of iterations which are presented below in chronological order.
