The same horizon repeated at every moment of the walk

The video is based on the pitch phenomena, a perceptual property that allows the ordering of sounds on a frequency-related scale. The composition is made of four frames, in which the moving figure’s head determines the pitch on the scale of each frame, from higher to lower, represented by simple lines. This aleatoric quartet reveals a specific approach, where some primary elements of a composed work’s realization are left to the determination of its performer. The line that represents the border – the horizon (which symbolizes both the line where the earth and the sea appear to meet the sky and the limit or extent of human knowledge, understanding, or experience) constantly changes its position.

 

The video was prepared as a part of the Artist-in-Residence program at Fundació AAVC Hangar in Barcelona, Spain. More about the project here: http://doroszenko.com/portfolio/horizon
