About the Artists:
Sarah Klein is a visual artist working in animation and printmaking. She employs drawing, paper cutouts and live-action footage to create both narrative and abstract pieces. After a decade of working in stop-motion animation, she continues to investigate the language of movement in her print-based works. Using image sequences and repetition, she focuses on individual parts that make up the whole work.
David Kwan is a sound and visual artist, who adapts musical structures into visual compositions. For the work in this exhibit, he takes inspiration from visualizations and analyses of sound, such as oscilloscope displays and spectrograms, and uses electronic synthesis techniques to produce signal patterns in sound and image. Layering and arranging these signals into chords and clusters, he plays with harmony, counterpoint and phasing, to highlight the interplay of line and pattern, and light and color. Watch video here.
