Reasonable Music: Samson Young

October 30, 2021-May 7, 2022

Jameel Arts Foundation, Jaddaf Waterfront, Dubai, UAE

Jameel Arts Foundation and Kochi-Muziris Biennale present Samson Young’s Artist’s Room, featuring a site-specific installation, Reasonable Music – an interactive environment consisting of (text as) sound and (text as) image. The components within this environment are derived from the processing of translating the Daoist text Daodejing. Insights from computational analysis on the text’s formal features are filtered through human intuition to generate a network of sonic and visual objects. As formal features progress along a chain of events, they are transformed, distorted, and take on new features.
