“I am assuming that at any given moment there will be something meaningful to hear and that music, in the sense of coherent sound patterns, is a process that is going on constantly. ”
A sound is all the possible ways there are to hear it” Bill Fontana
“Fontana’s sound environments renew our awareness of the places we inhabit and the powerful role sound plays in both our sense of self and memory. Fontana’s work is predicated on a sophisticated investigation into how we perceive sounds in the world.
He has created a series of compelling projects that subtly treat the interplay between the origins of sounds and the contexts in which we perceive them, causing the viewer to become conscious of himself and his senses as he hears and perceives anew the world he inhabits”
John Hanhardt, Guggenheim Museum
Acoustical Visions of the Golden Gate Bridge for the 75th Anniversay, San Francisco 2012 by Bill Fontana
“I began my artistic career as a composer. What really began to interest me was not so much the music that I could write, but the states of mind I would experience when I felt musical enough to compose.
In those moments, when I became musical, all the sounds around me also became musical”.
Dutch art collective WE MAKE CARPETS create a contemporary interpretation of the centuries-old medium of carpets but with the weaving method, materials, and patterns reflect the 21st century. At a distance, you simply see a decorative carpet. Closer inspection will, however, surprise you as WE MAKE CARPETS uses everyday items to create large carpets.
Products that normally have no value once they have been used, such as plastic forks, plasters, paving tiles, pasta, cotton balls and pegs are arranged in an inventive way to form a graphic pattern. WE MAKE CARPETS are inspired by the color, shape and possibilities of the discarded and cheap materials. The result is not just a decorative carpet, but an object that makes us think about the consumer society that produces these ‘weaving materials’.

The above picture is done by using the application called IOGraph, which can track down the movement of the using of mouse. The picture records the 9.4mins of my using the mouse. I was just browsing the websites during this period of time. I will try some other particular movements like editing on Premiere or Photoshop or Office.
Anatoly Zenkov provides this nifty tool (Mac and PC) to track your mouse pointer. Really simple. Just start it, let it run, minimize the window, and carry on as usual. In the end, you get this image that looks something like a Pollock. Circles show areas where the pointer didn’t move while the tracks show movement.
The above is my own activity during the past couple of hours. I was just randomly browsing while watching the Laker game, so it’s kind of all over the place. Run while using a single application for a while, and you might see something like Zenkov’s tracks on Photoshop.
