Remote Sense is a live fulldome AV performance by Jonny Knox, with visuals solely generated from Lidar (laser scanned) data and audio from collaborator and Ecuadorian sound designer, Darien Brito.
Taking inspiration from prehistoric artists who painted in 360 degrees, the work follows the shamanic/artistic process of entoptic phenomena, an altered state, universal, visual experience linked to the central nervous system which inspired mysterious yet familiar geometric and abstract Neolithic art.
“Spectacular. Never experienced anything like it.”
Journeying through an Irish woodland, Hang Boi cave in Vietnam, the Scottish brutalist masterpiece St. Peter’s Seminary, Beauvais Cathedral in France, a US industrial building and a 1950s Norwegian cinema, Remote Sense is a continuous fluctuation between recognised and abstract, with the audience’s perception left to fill the ‘spaces in-between’.
“Fulfilled expectations, loved the minimalistic audio and mind-altering visuals.”
