Romanticism 


Looking at the relationship between photography, music and technology, Sykes creates a colourful fusion, which tries to defy linear time.The process begins with the playing of classical music from the Romantic Era (1790-1910) on a regular loudspeaker. Whilst water beads placed on the speaker react to the vibrations of the music, Sykes takes multiple images. The photographs are then processed in a texture mapping software, where Sykes then interrupts this process to add colour to the texture. Each visual landscape colour represents the key of the classical music been played. The space around these visual islands is representative of the beauty of silence within classical music, which is said to be just as important as the music for the listener.
