Jitan V. Patel’s project: Beats
Example of laying simulation.
“With every step we take, we make a beat. One tile is one beat and many beats, a rhythm. Every rhythm, in turn, has a colour, the colour of harmony and melody. Every colour is a layout. The layouts, composed of every colour and rhythm, are myriad. The concept was inspired by the retro-graphic equalisers on stereo players, particularly in the 1980’s; always mesmerizing, hypnotic. The different concept possibilities represent different beats. We impact low, mid to high, all the frequencies and rhythms of our daily lives, onto our tiles. The tiles are myriad songs of our waking lives, these are the shifting frequencies of lives that have become music to our ears.”
