Antti Pussinen (b.1984, Finland) a multidisciplinary visual and sound artist based in Berlin, Germany. In his artworks, he uses analog and digital electronics to recreate impressions of phenomena found in nature and the universe. His latest research explores the boundary between wave physics and the real-world using sound and waveform imaging. His artworks have been shown in Contemporary art museum Kiasma, Art museums of Tampere, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Hyvinkää, and Kouvola in Finland; Suomesta Galleria Berlin, Freies Museum Berlin, DOX center for contemporary arts, Prague, Czech Republic, and Center for Architecture, New York, USA, and several other venues. Since 2004 he is a founding member of the SWÄG collective, who runs a 2000m2 culture center in an old paper factory in Tampere Finland. Lissajous Black & White In mathematics and physics, Lissajous curves are graphs that depict oscillation and waves and compare the frequency and intensity of two waves. In a vacuum, energy travels as electromagnetic waves, as oscillating electric and magnetic fields. The combined, reflective and other effects of these energies mold our environment and reality, as well as our visual and auditory sensations. In these pieces, I study the creation of surfaces and shapes that appear to be simultaneously organic and artificial in images generated using wave patterns. Artworks are photograms, exposed directly to black and white Fomapan photographic PE paper, using a modified color CRT-tube. The cathode ray (a stream of high energy electrons) is controlled with electronic sound waves, drawing the forms and patterns of the images. The ray passes through a tilted lens, creating variation in the sharpness of the images. The visible ”raster” is actually the color-separation grid inside the used CRT-tube. The photographic paper is then hand developed in large baths to enable broad black and white dynamics to each image. All artworks are made during 2018, and are unique originals, and are impossible to reproduce because of the technique used in making them. An attempt to re-expose and image with the same sound, would reproduce a different image.
