Demonstrating the hypnotic power of simultaneously hearing, touching and seeing sound, two different installations by Paris-based artist Bertrand Lanthiez engage with the impact of music on the entire body. Sounds of Threads was exhibited in Reykjavik, Iceland, in June 2013, where visitors interacted with the immersive work by both feeling and creating music.
Jacob Ring is a photographer from Sydney whose work at one level seems instantly familiar, faithfully recording ordinary objects and commonplace angles. But they are also filled with strangeness; warped inundations of colour, unnatural meetings between pigments. Perhaps their oddities are something to do with his synesthesia, a sensory condition Ring has had since birth, which ignites a constant stream of sounds and visuals in his head.
