Artist Note
Gil Kuno’s work makes use of flip dot display technology from the 60’s often used on bus destination signs. Though normally for text only, they have been manipulated to run animations. Each individual dot is programmed to constantly flip, as it is blown softly by air. Exaggerated sound becomes an important component to the artworks, adding to the phenomenal subject matter the artist chooses to focus on.

“Waterfall” is about the singularity of chaos. The animated sequence is mapped from footage of a waterfall with its roaring repetitive sounds of water falling.
