Caoimhe's practice works to creatively represent the mathematical make-up of music.
The digital paintings I create display a scene that represents the movement of music, frozen in time. My work is created by untangling the previously intangible mathematical make-up of a musical piece and translating it into something visible. The long process of creating each piece always begins with music, which I extract information from and continue by feeding this data through formulaic equations and graphs that will eventually inspire the graphics in my paintings. The way that the formula is presented means that the graphics can be mapped on top of the graphs to represent the movement of the music. As part of the swirling graphic paintings, colour plays a significant role in my work. The colour is usually inspired by other natural phenomena where movement can be tracked with colour. In addition, my understanding of music has played a large part in the representation of its movement so I have also integrated making music into my work by using the data from the music that I have made.
