Multiplication tables and art don’t necessarily seem to go together. However, the relationship, rhythm, and patterns found in math are artistic at their core. “Four Times in Cmaj” explores the 4 times table, in abstraction, over time. What inspired me to create this piece is the mathematical structure of multiplication, for example 4x1=4. Video is made from individual frames, 30 frames in each second. I looked at what would happen if I edited 4 frames of one source, and then 1 frame of a second source, resulting in 4 frames of a third source. I carried that through 4x14, in a master layer. Then, using time based segments based on multiples of the original number 4, layered and abstracted the master layer over time. The sound was produced independently using elements of the Cmaj chord, layered and abstracted in the same manner.
