Over the past four years Gary James Joynes (aka Clinker) has been working on a body of photo-based installation and video pieces that began with a research residency at The Banff Centre in 2009, and continues as he explores Cymatics, the science of visual sound. Frequency Painting is a body of work that looks deep into the visualization of sound by exploring the sculptural potential of resonant frequencies. He is also fascinated at the intermixing of senses, a neurologic “malfunction” called synaesthesia, and is using both sound and visual media to explore that phenomenon. Through this artistic practice he endeavours to illustrate the beauty of sound and its physical manifestation, and explore the mystery of sacred sounds as they apply to the human experience.
