Mike Blow

Mike Blow's work is concerned with the relationship between sound, space and the imaginary. He is interested in the use of sound as a medium, its relationship to physical and imaginary objects, and its power to engage us emotionally through memory or by evocation. His recent work such as Torch Song (2011) and SolarWork#2 (2012) explore the idea of art which is generated by external chance events, such as the actions of visitors or the weather.

 

Mike curated the sound art show 'Sonic Art' in the Brighton Festival Fringe 2009, is completing a PhD in the Sonic Art Research Unit at Oxford Brookes University, and lectures in Digital Art and Interaction Design at the University of Plymouth.

"Arpeggi" by Mike Blow

 

The Arpeggi are wind-driven kinetic sculptures, each fitted with three solar-powered sound oscillators. The form, based on the anemometers commonly found in weather stations, catches wind from any direction and causes the sculptures to revolve, creating shifting sound patterns as they spin at different speeds. Walk between the Arpeggi for the best effect.
