JADE LACOSTE

envision emotion

silence becomes white
time becomes paper
the pencil, a dancer

Each roll is a performative act of automatic drawing realised in one continuous movement while listening to a techno track. This specific genre was chosen for its trance-inducing repetitive beat, its looping rythms and its electronical essence. Inspired by the way electrocardiograms record heartbeats or electroencephalograms monitor brain activity, these pieces are a poetical representation of consciousness interpreting music. By maintaining a state of flow during the drawing process, the artist observes how the human perceptive system reads the intangible and transforms noise into melody, acoustical stimulis into landscapes, sound into matter.
