Apparatus for Synthesis of Digital Gesture I-II
Description of Work: This series of interactive sculptures attempts to entirely remove the artist’s hand from the historically emotive mark-making process, synthesizing gesture through a purely digital means. Using simple sensors and algorithms to generate gesture from environmental cues, like sound or motion, these apparatuses strive to question the process of digital mediation and the role of gesture in an increasingly techno-centric culture.
