Digital Study #2 (Azimuth Wave)

In conjunction with my ongoing exhibition Inverted Dome at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Mackey Garage Top, I’m releasing a series of fully digital studies that further advance ideas touched on within the exhibition. The second in this series of four works is Azimuth Wave.

Azimuth Wave

Digital Study #2 (Azimuth Wave), 2022

Azimuth is a type of angular measurement. It establishes an orientation in relation to a point of interest within a spherical coordinate system. The concept is typically used in navigation, mapping, astronomy, and other disciplines.

In everyday speech, a mirror is a surface that reflects back an inverted image of its surrounding environment. Mirrors in our homes are used for self-reflection, in our cars for navigation, and throughout cities as exterior cladding for skyscrapers. More broadly, a mirror is a wave reflector — optical mirrors reflect light waves, but other types of mirrors reflect audio or even atomic waves.

Inverted Dome

Please join us for an informal listening event at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture this weekend. An amazing group of artists have selected and/or composed audio tracks that reflect in some way on my ongoing exhibition Inverted Dome. This event is part of the Block Party at the MAK Center’s Mackey Apartments.
