1. Cellular Automata & Music

    My work this semester consisted in creating  an acoustic musical work for Soprano and 7 Instruments (piccolo, alto flute, harp, piano, celesta, percussion, and violin), where the underlying logico-structural and pre-compositional work was rooted within Stephen Wolfram’s research in cellular automata as presented in his influential book “A New Kind...
  2. Final Process Post

    Materials for final piece: Tracing paper, Surface hardener (Amazing Fa-bric), pigment ,acrylic paint, and LED lights. Tracing paper that has translucent, wispy and light feeling, almost as if it is not there connects to the size and weight of the screens we use today.  So many screens are made for...
  3. Visualizing Reality

    This project was a simple process of interacting with material, observing the changes and documenting the results. Photographing, copying and hand drawing approaches were all utilized to explore the potential of the image. The multiple documented layers blur the perceived reality of the image. I related this process to my conceptual exploration...
  4. Process Post 2

    As I continue my research in the connections between learning, reality and memory in the context of psychology, neuroscience and perception, I have decided to experiment specifically with cognitive development theory. This investigation will culminate through an integration of Gestalt and other visual perception theories in an interactive art piece. The viewer will be challenged...
  5. Project Proposal

    I am interested in utilizing the science of natural dyes while collecting and categorizing plants from the Texas and Mexico border region to show how a location defined by violence has the potential to give color. Through out the project I will collect and catalogue natural plant material and water...
  6. Learning/reality

      Considering the connections between LEARNING and REALITY in the context of neuroscience, psychology and philosophy: “Certain aspects of experience, it was assumed, were primarily determined by the basic physical structure of the brain and the nature of the neural processes occurring in it, and could not be altered by learning....
  7. Critique #1

    Project History : Genetics > Blast > Mutations > Cellular Automata! Stephen Wolfram > Complexity Moto : to meditate upon the material / then dissolve with it: become an enigma / then crystalize, permutate, combine: within symmetry, asymmetry Concept : An acoustic musical work for Soprano and 5 Instruments, where...
