Description

Hobbes’ Folly¬†

Hobbes’ Folly is an audiovisual digital art object by Massimo Magee, designed to be read by the computer as both a visual still image and as a piece of audio, these being two readings of the same file. The piece was shaped across both visual and audio dimensions functionally simultaneously, meaning that a change in the visual also affected the audio, and a change in the audio also affected the visual. What the computer sees as one file with both visual and audio dimensions enmeshed within and between each other at once, human observers require separate audio and visual readings of. In this way the gulf between machine and human perception is laid bare.¬†

Beneath the veneer of mannered decoration lies a surging torrent of noise, but this has its own harsh beauty.
