Turbulent Forms is an exhibition of new work by artist and composer Dan Tapper, exploring the universe through chaos and cosmology. The works are inspired and derived from physical data gathered by space organizations and physicists as well as using thought experiments, illustrative techniques and imagination to create parallels and appreciation of complex, abstract and theorized concepts.

In Turbulent Forms, space–time is bent through huge forces of energy, spinning supernovas cast fragments of light and the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is transformed through processes of generation loss. Each work is created through systematic and symbiotic approaches to sound, visual, physical installation and composition, creating an immersive experience.

The exhibition will be presented for the month of August with a concert and installation launch for a new installation project called NOVA on August 8th. All events take place at the Canadian Music Centre (Toronto, Canada) and are co-presented by the Canadian Music Centre and New Adventures in Sound Art, the show was made possible through funding from the British Council and Arts Council England’s – Artists’ International Development Fund.

A monograph detailing the work presented in Turbulent Forms published by +- Art Science Press will be released on August 8th in physical and digital editions.
