EVL graduate research assistant, JD Pirtle joins fellow MFA candidates in 2011 Thesis Exhibitions, April 5-30, Gallery 400, University of Illinois at Chicago.
Pirtle’s thesis work The Fall Beyond Tomorrow’s Life uses water as a novel interface for the creation of a unique soundscape; as a viewer disturbs the surface of the water, or bends over to look into the sculptural pool, sounds resonate throughout the environment.
All aspects of this project incorporate the use of digital technologies - from design concept, pre-visualization, prototyping, modeling and execution. Pirtle functions equally as an artist, programmer, and creative technologist to focus on visualizations and sonifications that bridge the void between the conventional and technological.
Exhibition: April 26-30
