A word is worth a thousand pictures.
Whether it’s a city, a person’s name, a feeling or a concept (for eg Opportunity, Mobility, Sustainability), the sound of that word/ phrase creates a flood of images that streams into the mind's eye to capture the spirit and essence of the sound.
Amrita first records a voice note, for example a city/ person/ feeling etc and captures its fluid shape and structure of the sound wave. Then she hands draws each vertical line into individual images that encapsulates the beauty, spirit and essence of that voice note. When its complete, it magically combines the artwork with the shape of the sound to create new Voice note Art ©.
Each Voice note Art (c) comes with its own QR Code merging Art with Technology. When the QR code is activated, it plays the audio of the voice note that was used to create the artwork.
Whether it is a standard design, or a custom-made Voice note Art (c) the QR code brings the artwork to life. Stick it alongside the artwork so that others can interact with your art piece
