The work uses Covid related announcements to unveil the official vernacular. To deconstruct this language using pure fact, in this case human behaviour, interaction and movement, as a tool to cut into semantics and generate new perspectives.

Just as a dream makes sense of the experiences of the day, this digital dreamscape takes the factual data of real-time movement/interaction to present a new perspective for the viewer.

The work reveals meanings as it progresses and the machine has an opinion, creating pure tones when the populace of the screen is less dense and more chaotic sounds as more people gather, an analogy for the virus perhaps?

Alastair McNeill Aka Yila is an artist who specialises in creating spatial audio and surround sound installations using the voice as a medium. He uses language abstractions in his work as a source and a rich timbral palette, mostly creating socially aware work to address current or future issues. He embraces new technologies, such as AI and motion tracking and uses these as an artistic language to make statements but also works with story tellers and authors as an inspiration. His work mostly focuses on improvised performance as the core, or autonomously generated works and everything in between. Working under his musical moniker Yila he is interested in blurring the boundaries of art and music.
