... for the colours diametrically opposed to each other ... are those that reciprocally evoke each other in the eye.
— Goethe, Theory of Colours
In September 2019, Instant Places (aka Laura Kavanaugh et Ian Birse) did a residency at the Idea Exchange in Cambridge, Ontario to create a series of 60 monoprints juxtaposing areas of colour to create harmonies of difference, as translucent layers hover around the diametric oppositions of the colour wheel.
Laura and Ian will also photograph the stages of work and use these images as source material for a generative, visual machine they program (in the software environment, Max/MSP/Jitter). During their performance for Sight & Sound, they will use modular synthesis and prepared guitar to spontaneously compose an audio field. It will evolve in parallel with a visual world being generated in real time, as images from the monoprint processes permute and morph in infinitely-varying transformations.
