Rob Brown is a visual and sound artist who lives in Santa Ana, California. He was born in 1981 in Joplin, Missouri and grew up in Reno, Nevada. His practice includes drawing, printmaking, painting and sound installation. His current work deals with ideas of systems, structure, logic and perception. He employs processed and synthesized sound/video alongside prints and drawings. These works are often realized through a set of self-defined parameters which come from personal research and interests.
His piece “parallax/fade” combines projected monochromatic pattern animations and percussive sounds to create a reactive system. One in which the viewers proximity to the projected image modulates the intensity of the generated sound, which in turn modulates the intensity of the animated visuals. This series of interdependent relationships opens up a space where as the viewer approaches the piece the speed and rhythm of both the sound and visuals slows down, creating an intimate awareness of the viewer/participants physicality, spatial awareness and sense of time.
