SOUND LIGHT MEMORY: LOVE is an iteration of moving image works entitled INTERNET SONGLINES. It is a capture of a relief sculpture created from a spoken word, in this case LOVE. The emotive source for this body of work is my voice: spoken words transformed from mind to body to air to digital audio recording to visual rendering through and by machines and then back to handworked objects, then transformed to moving image. These ideas of sound and place serve as a metaphysical way finding.

Jan Swinburne’s intermedia practice overlaps images, sculpture, and experimental moving image art in two streams: Gallery oriented exhibitions, and time based experimental forms. Her thematic focus revolves around words, language as landscape, degenerated and regenerated images and sounds. Swinburne has screened, presented talks, and exhibited internationally online and in Greenwich England, New York City, New Jersey, South Hampton, Washington DC, and in Canada. Swinburne works and lives in Toronto, Canada.
