Ocean Oscillograph – Melanie King

Blue picture frame reading: ocean oscillograph melanie king

Ocean Oscillograph visualises ocean tide data within an immersive photo-acoustic installation. It is a multi-sensory experience of laser light, phosphorescence and sound. Sonified ocean data moves laser light which is drawn upon a phosphorescent disc. This disc then re-emits the laser light slowly while rotating, allowing the lasers’ intricate drawings to be seen. 

Melanie King is an artist and curator with a specific focus on astronomy. Melanie King’s studio is based in Ramsgate, Kent. She is co-Director of super/colliderLumen Studios and founder of the London Alternative Photography Collective. Melanie is currently Artist In Residence at the School of Metallurgy and Materials at The University of Birmingham, from 2021 to 2022. 

Open daily from 12-5pm between September 2nd and 5th.
