Synchronicity Mapping and 4-channel audio installation

Synchronicity Mappings are a project that I started in the year 2000 while thinking about site-specific installations and the relationships that occur between the room/space and the audience.

Mappings are generated from the floor plan of the space by drawing lines along the alignments between and through the various aspects of the space: doors, windows, columns, corners, and other obstructions or relationships of space flow and site-lines.

Lines pass through (both sides) doorways, entryways, and windows; past columns, and any protruding corners or walls; and terminate as well as begin at any corners. 

Analyzing the crossings and voids that occur between all the lines we can find the ‘sweet spots’ within the room, defined by the occurrence of multiple crossings at the same place within any open areas of a room by the various lines generated, or by the lack or void of any crossing.

It is these zones of multiple crossings that are considered ‘Synchronicities’.

A further development of this project is the production of musical scores and or the generation of computer generated audio from these mappings.

Scores may be generated by overlaying the mappings onto music sheets, producing notes from the various aspects of the space, as well as from the occurrence of all synchronicity points.

Audio may also be produced directly from the mappings by running the mapping through on-line applications that generate audio from image files.

In producing audio files the lines produced in any mapping are separated according to the geometry of the room; a rectangular room would be organized around the use of 4 speakers placed in the 4 separate corners of the room, with the various lines assigned to one of the 4 zones created by the speakers.

Four separate audio files are then produced from these separate mappings and played back simultaneously and allowed to loop as desired.

Synchronicity Mapping

Temporal Field Portal Generation and Exploration

The temporal activities past, present and future throughout space leave residual patters known as memory within both the undifferentiated and differentiated temporal (mind) fields.

When the harmonic resonance patterns of synchronized light, sound, action and memory are applied as inductive force (mnemono-harmonic resonance) to a historical site (terminal A of time circuitry) and human participants (terminal B of time circuitry) a charged current may be found between terminals.

The resonance pattern and flux current produced creates a field portal and it is through the currents within this field that temporal exploration occurs.

A temporal field portal may be produced using a 'Memory (Mnemono-Harmonic) Engine', an array of light and sound oscillators, media projections, and cutup News media.

Portal operation is aligned with the general and specific site orientations, articulation actions, and time sensitive synchronicity.

Psychonaut activities are governed by site history, in relation to the topic for temporal exploration, and the experience and receptivity of the psychonaut involved.

A 'Mind Tap' may be actuated through the articulation and manipulation of the nexus points of a resonant time circuitry, focused on a receptive mind within the temporal field core.

'Memory Engine' Primary Elements
1 General Orientation: matrix orientation
2 Specific Orientation: artifact memory: remains, historical recreation, video and other media;
room 'coloring' frequency, architecture, and structural nodes
3 Carrier Signal Wave Engine: light/sound pulse generators applied to the architecture
and aligned with the room 'coloring' and matrix orientation
4 Articulation Engine: symbols, language, actions, and mobile resonators
5 Synchronicity: force lines, flow channeling and inertia of light, sound, and human activity
