hyperthymesia (25 years of non-linear western australian history)
5 screens / 5 channels video, 2 channels sound

Kynan Tan has created a new audio-visual artwork for exhibition at the State Library in conjunction with the State of the Art Festival. The new work, titled hyperthymesia, utilises 5 screens of video and accompanying sound, creating a new representation of Western Australian music through rearranging and reforming the archives of material. The work creates a hyper-synaesthetic overload of the senses as thousands of moments in time are rapidly overlaid and recombined.
