“While diagrams are real, they need not be actual – they can be virtually real.”
Digital media artists Laine Butler and Wiklow converge on Diagram, their first audio-visual collaboration. Butler’s dynamic and chaotic structures are interwoven with Wiklow’s glitchy and textural soundtrack to create imaginary digital landscapes. Drawing influence from both physicality and digitalism, Diagram is an undiscovered space made up of ethereal motifs and hyperrealism.
Butler and Wiklow have presented works at events like Shambhala Music Festival, Bass Coast Music Festival, and Montréal’s MUTEK. They can be found on labels like Vancouver’s Chapel Sound, Sensing Waves and Berlin’s Micromod Music.
