The Mylar Topology



Author: Paul Prudence

The Mylar Topology is an audio-visual performance work intended for panoramic projection (3 screen span) and spatial sound. The piece synchronizes binaural drones with generative video simulations of liquid forms (abstracted and distorted)

Best viewed in full-screen mode

The works’ liquefied polychromatic psychedelia are minimal subjective interpretations of the reflective properties of Mylar sheets. After I saw Ira Cohen’s lysergic film ‘Invasion of the Thunderbolt Pagoda’ I learned he filmed it by pointing his camera at reflections of distorted Mylar sheets to create visual effects. The Mylar Topology is both a reflection and distortion of a (non visible) luminosity point that exists beyond/outside the screen.
