The Proof of Concept series emerges out of Robin Fox's practice spanning seven years as an audio-visual performance artist exploring the area of synaesthesia via electrical signal equivalence. These explorations focus on the conversion of sounding electricity into visual electricity using oscilloscopes and laser projectors to facilitate the visualisations. The use of both mediums requires that a single light source move with enough speed to create persistence of vision, allowing for the emergence of solid two- and three-dimensional correlates to the sound algorithms. In this series of photographs, sounding algorithms are visualised using laser light and captured using long exposure to allow for the light to trace across the recording medium. The result is a time-distilled snapshot of the sampling space. The photographs represent after-images, slices of time that contain these algorithms, which have their genesis in sound. Displayed in a linear sequence, the photographs are a silent witness to this process.
