Teemu Määttänen: Noisescape

In this work, a mass of rippling images meets a rippling surface, and a hand-drawn line meets programmed computer graphics. Exalting the beauty of waves, the piece consists of 78 plywood boards with projected images.

Noisescape is an installation, which evokes everything from a hilly countryside to a wave-tossed ocean. While the structure itself is entirely static, it uses specially designed projections to create the illusion of movement.   

Right before the eyes of the viewers, a fascinating play of shapes and colours takes place, at one point recalling the ornaments of a kaleidoscope and at others the wild flora of a remote jungle or the elegance of Japanese woodcuts. In this minimalist installation, Teemu Määttänen integrates organic projection with a wavy projection surface and hand-painted patterns with computer-generated graphics.   

Minimalist installation with maximum effect - that's Noisescape. This colourful projection will enchant both adult and child viewers with its playful optical illusions and unexpected combinations of different techniques.
