A multifaceted project combining high-speed photography, moving image and ethereal soundscapes. Essentially Tabula Rasa is a voyeuristic look at the hypnotic behaviour of different coloured paints in water.

Interactive Online Platform and Website
A new concept within the arts, allowing personal interaction and engagement with online media which is characterised by an evolving shelf life. Viewers interested in purchasing a one-off piece from the Tabula Rasa collection of moving images can do so using this interactive online platform; Helix to select an individual, limited edition print. Along with time and purchases, the work will gradually disappear until there is nothing left.

Our aim has been to hone our process in order to capture as much of the beauty of this medium as possible and deliver it in a format which is as mesmerising for the viewer as it is for us witnessing its manifestation in the studio; this was the motivation for the moving image facet of the project.
Mike Holmes & Ernest Otoo worked on a soundscape to this which would make the experience as immersive as possible. We were fortunate enough to be accepted to work in the Moog Soundlab, which gave us access to some immensely, unique analog sounds which we’ve incorporated into the soundscape.
