Jesse Woolston is a media artist, classically trained composer, and sound designer who works to fuse technology with creativity. Woolston creates these audiovisual pieces with AI, computation, environmental design, and music composition to challenge our interpretation of nature and history.
Do we interpret our world through a myopic lens of fixed memory, or are we willing to unlock the doors of perception and consider a place with an open mind, as if experiencing it for the first time? Jesse Woolston meditates on the interconnectivity between the natural world and the tonalities inherent in colors recognized on the visible light spectrum. By designing a meticulous soundtrack that combines classical string orchestration with electronic sequences, the artist asks us to consider our interpretation of places through an entirely new sensory experience.
