Audiovisual installation

Over the last two decades, Australian artist Andy Thomas has developed an iconic visual language that is uniquely his own. He specializes in creating "audio life forms", beautiful abstract shapes that react to sound, based on recordings and photographs of Birds and other animals gathered through extensive field trips into remote natural habitats around the world.

The collected data is creatively animated using generative motion graphics algorithms, resulting in visually stimulating video and 2D digital art works. In his projects, intricately layered compositions of plants and animals make a strong statement of technology’s impact on planet earth and how advancements in society are affecting the natural systems of life.
