7 Circles, Soundpiece

9 minutes 16 seconds, 2013

Sound Recording Call Out
Yung made an international call out for participants to send in their recordings of them uttering the one-syllable sounds of the Sanskrit Bija seed mantras lam, ram, yam, ohm. The recordings received varied in tone, duration and pitch and were from people of all ages, backgrounds and locations. Yung edits them into a collective harmonic voice piece pervading the gallery, interspersed with samples of instruments to consider variations in scale and Pythagoras’ ‘harmony of the spheres’. 7 circles intermittently fills the gallery with the choruses and vocals of the audience and further interacts with the sound-responsive light installation Passings in real time. This sound piece extends the artist’s examination of pathological phenomenon and how it manifests and locates itself within the mind and physical body. The mono-syllabic sounds are believed to resonate with and activate the body’s seven energy chakras when uttered aloud, purifying and balancing mind and body. In the gallery, this links to the recurring mantras featuring in the video works and echoes the meditative rhythmic behind Breathe.

Passings, Light installation, 2013

Passings Station, wooden structure, fabric curtain and microphone, Mottos In Thread, 2013
Passings, sound responsive light installation directly interacts with the viewer’s voice and transforms the gallery into light waves and hypnotic pattern. From the discreet microphone in the Passings Station, the viewer may outlet their personal thoughts, emotions and blockages, hidden from fellow viewers. This then triggers and activates vibrant patterns of red, green, blue and white to dance across and animate the gallery space for all to experience. Circular in sequencing, they reinforce the subtle reiteration of the chakras energy centres, and enables the viewer to embed the gallery with their own stories or repeat the mantras from the 7 Circles voices. Each expulsion of the inner breath becomes visual exhalation, making visible the sequence of actions and consequences from one person to another and from internal to external.

Corona Light installation

Polyethylene, 50x50x50cms, 2013

Corona imbues Gallery Two as a pure and silent space for contemplation and mental clearing. The globe sits quietly, subtly spanning the entire chromatic spectrum for the restful sensory absorption of the viewer. Its ebbing glow emulates the circadian rhythms of the viewer’s breathing perhaps quickened by Nigel’s anxiety or alleviated by Breathe’s meditative trance. Each transient hue is reminiscent of light and colour as a basic human need for sensory interaction. At once its perception- softness, tone, intensity, stimulatory effect is shaped by the viewer’s individual physiological make-up and how we perceive colour differently one to other. Together with the drawings, objects, the chromatic light works converge the tensions and visual/contextual undulations addressed across the four video works, transforming specific points in the gallery into space for sensory, mental and physical clearing.

Electric Blue and Orange Luster Light installation:

Neon Lights, 135x3cm, 2013 Interaction with the neon luminous orange is believed to offer freedom, sociability and liberation from nausea and alienation in relation to Nigel’s acts and neurosis, whilst the electric blue is symbolic of individual agency independence and inviting viewer to open chest and mind, to share and project thoughts, desires and fears.

The Auto-Psychometric Suffering Devices

Ink, paper, 2013
A series of twelve drawings depicting various hypnosis inducing contraptions. The imagined contraptions hypnotise and entrance a patient suffering from deep rooted or surface physical and mental distress. The devices vary in their operation, outcomes and purposes- some measure, record, others register and distract. Once activated by the clinician, the patient enters an altered psychological state that pierces the source of pain/displeasure mentally. Following two or three repeated intensive sessions, the individual experiences appeasement and eventual eradication of any discomfort despite further external exacerbation or memory triggering. Mechanism A-PS Device Vii String Dialysis Pointer obtains psychometric readings for thanatophobia (fear of death) synodrome. It forms almost a bodily drip composed of an organ and Konghou strings, perhaps connecting patient’s body to a rotating disc whilst heating the patient’s bodily fluids to measure the reading. Ix Crossed Wire Contraptor is surgical, a burst of excruciating pain results from the patients molar interface with the electrical impulses generated by the cross-wires, counterbalanced by the small stone- a regulatory re-adjuster for hysteria. Triangular Disc’s humble simplicity dates to Man Ray’s Rayographs and may prevent verbal stuttering whilst … Iii Dial Trapper’s trigger spins the cog to boost serotonin levels. Fragile, cumbersome and comedic in their impossibility- can the floppy handless glove of Vi Perception Slicer permeate the episodic buffer and unblock memory.
