The genesis of Tone Tension is to observe the remnants of the social concept of colour in South Africa - between individuals, within themselves and through their relationship to space through the association of a purely artistic and scientific observation to colour and tonalities. The constructed images is an inquiry into these variations and tensions. I use a histogram and a waveform, as scientific tools, to measure the intensity of the tension. These tools make visible its complexity or on the contrary denies a tension that we seemed to feel.
