Sculpture is an opto-musical agglomerate made up of Dan Hayhurst (music), and Reuben Sutherland (animation). Their first test hit upon a psychedelic palette, the sensorial intricacies of which they continue to explore. Performance is central to their work, and feeds back into all aspects of the process. Sculpture’s output includes music, ﬁlm and video work, and multi-sensory live shows.
Their performances are an amalgam of electronic music, kinetic art, comic strips, abstract animation, audiovisual cut-ups – a mix of analog and digital practices – tape manipulation, samples, found sounds, aleatoric and algorithmic programming and live improvisation. Dan plays media devices and electronic instruments. Reuben plays video zoetrope turntable.
The exhibition 'Animation-disc-o' of the German Institute of Animated Film connects the pre-cinematic motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge with its conceptual developments as seen in modern animations for example of Theodore Ushev or Clemens Kogler. The use of rotating discs is an essential aspect of their visual works.
