HYS is a collaboration between sound artist Giovanni Lami and visual artist Clio Casadei. During the summer of 2018, Lami created a 6 minute and 20 seconds sound piece recorded on-site in a park in Faenza ITALY, Clio Casadei’s place of residence. Casadei was later approached to create a visual transcription of this audio. Both versions, audio and visual, now hold the same title: HYS.

Familiar with his work and technique, Clio Casadei identified four important aspects that can describe Lami’s work and methods: stratification, fluidity, vulnerability and permeability.

Casadei approaches these aspects in a metaphysical manner where they are understood from a human experience point of view. It is her understanding of these 4 elements that will guide her through the creation of 50 vectorial drawings. Taken from her personal archive and own graphical language, these shapes, textures or logos are here transformed from one state to another, materializing the connection between different state of minds. The progression of the visual transformation is circular, not fixed, uninterrupted and adresses time/duration as a subjective notion capable of modifying the appearances.

Includes unlimited streaming of HYS via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
