Gary Pennock The Asynchronous Coma: Living Screens, Rooms, and Bodies

The Asynchronous Coma by Gary Pennock

The Asynchronous Coma by Gary Pennock

Gary Pennock experiments with the intrinsic properties of phenomena and materials to form an aesthetic experience. He attempts to capture the imagination with poetic presentations of Meta themes such as time, nature and mortality that often function at the threshold of perceptual awareness. Attuning time based compositions to our visual and aural apparatus allows him to transform our engagement with screen-based technologies, into potentially therapeutic events that wash across the senses.  

Pennock’s installation at the AC Institute is arranged in a darkened space through which the viewer is led into intimate encounters with seven works whose immersive viewpoints encompass the body in a ritualistic experience of time.   Technology and the natural world form a symbiotic relationship mediated by the human body.

Pennock’s sensory environments, be it projected light dancing on flowing fabric in Horizon in the Fold, or the auditory and visual A Line Through the Center of Space, and the sifting sands of Erode give voice to materials and phenomena that evoke meaningful connections with our sensing systems.  The artist focuses on the audience synthesizing minimal elements into their own universe, striving for a balance between subjective and objective.  He aims to operate at the boundaries of reality and illusion, thought and emotion.

China Blue

China Blue is an award winning international artist whose current work focuses on the brain. Brainwaves of individuals, sensed through her customized EEG software, control the light and sound of an interactive sculpture and also dynamically create personal mind produced drawings. Over the past two decades she has created sound art works that focus on researching and developing data sonification. This has lead to discovering the hidden acoustics imbedded in the iron of the Eiffel Tower, submerged in Venice’s water or encased in NASA’s Vertical Gun chamber. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Engine Institute.
