multiplicity draws tiered levels of relationships between the seen and heard, creating an interconnected web of synaesthetic experience. multiplicity is a work that attempts to illustrate, to bring to life through computer-generated sound and image, the idea of the multiple, the numerous, the singular. In doing so the work questions relationships between objects, the way in which things grow and evolve over time.

Cities are laid out in sequence, the networks between points illustrated by fragile beams of light. Cells appear and grow in communities, then amass to create a singular entity. Computer data zips through the pipeline, gradually increasing in frequency, complexity and noisiness.

multiplicity forms the second work in Kynan’s ongoing series of audio-visual works regarding perception, thought and networks, following on from consciousness, which explored data collected from sleeping brain activity.
