Noise Floor II
"Noise Floor II" is another attempt to work with scale and perspective to convey what 'houses' feel like. In this version of the noise floor, I tried to be more quick and decisive, and I believe I got closer to what I hope to convey.
Using 'noise floor' to think about an actual floor came from listening to music. An album I was listening to at the time made a reference to the concept of a noise floor, which I began to look into. I don't work with audio the same way a musician would, but my understanding of the noise floor is something like 'the sum of all the background noise'; this seemed like the auditory version of the visual world I tried to formulate.
In this version, I decided to incorporate the home into the figure as well as outside of the figure. I also chose to keep the carpet as abstract and simple as possible. Additionally, in my first 'Noise Floor', the lower figure read as more of a shadow than a hole; so here, I had the text enter and exit the figure, to achieve a dimensionality that connects the figure to their surroundings.
