«Atomistic» is a dialogue between two artworks: Time Piece (Seconds) and Neocortex. Both works deal with ideas about the perception of time continuity and its division into smaller parts. Each of them, however, engages another of our senses. One is a polyrhythmic arrangement of pulsating lights, an impression-evoking visual work; The sound composition designed in collaboration with Constantin Engelmann explores the limits of auditory perception: when language become noise, when a pulse become continuous, when a sound becomes a vibration. The artists explore these phenomena and invite the public to be entertained by the illusions of the human brain.
It is by combining the two in space that a multi-sensual experience is triggered. The two artworks influence and complement one another: one is eternal, the other represents an event. Thanks to the development of the sound narration it is possible to peer at Time Piece (Seconds) for a longer time. The auditory stimuli from Neocortex mislead our visual reception: sometimes the lights seem to pulsate differently.
Bernd Schurer is an electronic music composer, conceptual sound, performance and installation artist
