Mission Control is part of INTESTINOLOGY, a process of art-making and an organ of experimentation for materials to be digested and transformed, releasing and unearthing discoveries that lie beneath the surface of things. Broadly arranged in series since 2014, Mission Control marks the fifth iteration in series #4, an exploration of human systems, perception, and sound phenomena using new technology and mixed media.

Mission Control by Joo Choon Lin will launch upon the rise of the full moon on 30 November, a trip to the beat of the cosmos and the churn of the salty seas. Live streamed on YouTube, each performance will be a discovery of the potential of materials and objects to transmit and generate sound.

The seed of the artist’s exploration in each episode lies in her own particular set of tools, and the methods and techniques in wielding them, informed by a certain mathematical basis or geometric structure and her inquiry into numerical systems as a bridge to enter the complexity and wonders of the invisible realm. The copper pennies—acting as conductors of electricity—on her disc-shaped clay sculptures are arranged into geometric configurations, and her 9-pad angular sculptures are inspired by the golden ratio as well as the magic square, a grid in which the numbers in the rows, columns, and diagonals all add up to the same. These sound sculptures, alongside mechanical turntables and modified digital electronics, form several of the experimental musical instruments in the artist’s expanding toolkit of sound-producing objects and techniques.

The possibilities in deploying these tools evolve as the artist plays and replays her collection of sounds in a series of musical exercises in her studio. It is a process in which intuition and logic converge into one. She assigns sounds to positions in a numerical system, assembles sound pitches together based on the mathematical relationship between their visualized lines, and constructs sets of collages with sound. The compositions that emerge resemble waves and spirals that are constantly changing, freed from their original geometric forms and numerical bases, and channeled into a different dimension.

One might think of the way the stalk of a morning glory twines and curls its way up a fence, as if searching for something above. Or how our breath, through a series of inhalations and exhalations, can usher in a state in which we feel at one with the cosmos. Or the strike of a bell giving way to a succession of overtones, perceptible only when we hold on, attuned to what had just come before. Its origin—the vibration of each seed, each breath, and each tone—has its own system of construction and set patterns, as one might observe under a microscope. Yet, out of these ordered patterns and sets spring unending streams of sensations and rhythms. It is this dance of possibility and state of timelessness that Choon Lin is after. In each performance, as geometry transforms into poetry, the hues, textures, and beat of these spirals unfold as she immerses herself within the vibration of life. The outcome of each episode, be it interrupted or discordant, will reverberate in subsequent performances, as echoes of a journey in a digital, expansive, indefinite domain. Mixed with NASA’s transmissions from space and archival audio tracks, the sounds spiraling from the sculptures blend with the planetary and celestial acoustic flow, composing a sonic orchestra of the universe.

Joo Choon Lin created folding sculptures using tarpaulin that are unfolded and refolded endlessly into geometric shapes in a rhythmic arrangement. Choon Lin is interested in the possibilities of collapsing them into something metaphorically loaded form. Morphing one form into another in a process of metamorphosis as they are layered, angled and bends at shifting folds. Moving images of ocean, geometric sand patterns, grass swaying in wind and wood grain silkscreened on water are superimposed on folded tarpaulin sculptures. The superimposed image is a matrix of presences that appear and disappear into the surface of tarpaulin which can change our perceptions, through the alteration of what happens on the surface. The preoccupation with its repeating, revealing and concealing generate the different resonances of becoming presence in ever-changing and expanding forms. Essences unfold, new dimensions arise and new modes of experiences emerge.

Synopsis:

聞。梵音 [三部曲] / pEARs ‘ __/\_/\_/\__ ‘ in §pring is a film trilogy that composed in a rhythmic ensemble of objects. Joo’s ongoing interest in morphogenesis, and endowing sound with a sculptural textual is manifested here a new, mutated forms, set to a rhythm of lights and electric frequency, pulsating and blinking as if they are alive—breathing, growing and evolving.

A Short Demo of Mission Control #01: The Cold Purity of Mathematic Love/Trust Equations = {¢☼inHz [R☼AR***G☼ldenMILKYWAYLightYEAR %NANOMILES] -+ ¢☼smi¢ExisteΩce [SPACE/TIME]-+[In/☼ut]}

The Cold Purity of Mathematic Love/Trust Equations is an on-going series that explores the visual paraphrases of sound phenomena. Artist creates a set of circular discs sculptures, mechanical turntables and modified digital electronics. The discs are encrusted with malleable clay and a collection of coins from various countries are pressed in specific arrangements into the clay. The coin act as closing and opening circuits built into the mechanical-kinetic and sound generating sculptures. The works are inspired by NASA, the space mission of the 1960s and 70s, and the exploration of the space; rhythm and harmony of the universe. By incorporating with the archival audio and NASA transmission from the space, I will like to invite the audience to form new symbolic relations with the instruments that emit sounds intermittently, as if tapping into the mystery of the cosmos.
