Ookloop Studio is a collaborative formed by Felicia Francine and Benjamin David. Their creative processes are comprised of analog and digital fabrication. Felicia Francine’s past works have embraced the transformation of materials and methods of making through the exploration of material properties and process driven investigations. Benjamin David’s works of art fuse video, electronics and music. For Visualizing Sound 2.0, they have created collaborative and individual abstract works using advanced design technologies paired with imagery which is influenced by the Pop & Op Art movements.
Their art investigates how sound is comprehended and manipulated. Their fabrication techniques afford the works a flexibility and diversity in their visual portrayal of sound. For most of us, we are surrounded by sound through our auditory senses. However, this is only one avenue in which sound is traditionally experienced. For them, understanding the subject goes beyond this one line of communication. Thus, they have investigated how to attain a deeper knowledge of sound by visualizing and documenting what cannot be seen.
