AZBY BROWN, director of the KIT Future Design Institute, will show several new videos. These complex, abstract works are generated by a parametric image processing system, in which the image is either controlled by an audio track composed by the artist, or the audio is generated by the image, and other aspects modified over time by image synthesis patches. An extension
of painting and collage into the realm of time, they emerge from Brown’s recent neuroscience research into the human visual processing system, and the nature of understanding.
