Developing Graham Fudger's fascination with particle physics and the science of seeing, Electric Wallpaper features three new 4K UHD video works exploring the sensory and psychical experience of vision using graduated transitional hues. Shot as high-resolution stills in a dedicated macro-FX studio and manually assembled in Final Cut, the series extends the research that structured and informed the Quantum Field series, released in 2021.
Electric Wallpaper #1 references the exothermic nucleosynthesis crushing super-heated hydrogen atoms at the heart of our star as the source of the electromagnetic radiation we have evolved to sense and interpret as light. Stimulating the visual cortex with contrasting analogous and complementary colour relationships, the 4K UHD video is chromatically animated to transition through the colour wheel at speeds of 7.5 and 60 seconds.
The longer ones (Meditative), make a transition in their colour at the speed of 60 seconds, and are intended to reach into the subliminal perception, whilst the faster ones, that change in colour every 7.5 seconds, (Attentive) aim to foreground the process in a more direct and obvious manner.
