Your Motion Says

In this installation by Melbourne-based artist Danae Valenza, music is both heard and seen.

Each of eight neon sculptures correspond to an instrumental line of a song. The work is completed by the viewer, as their movement and proximity activates bursts of vivid colour and sound. While the neon sculptures appear as abstract forms, together they read ‘It’s just a matter of deciding where to begin’ in Teeline shorthand notation, a writing system that uses symbols for sounds or words. Shorthand enables dialogue to be transcribed into text as fast as it is spoken.
