Interactive sound sculptures and wierd electronic devices
I like to build things. Using my hands to create something whimsical by combining physical materials with my knowledge and skill of interactive media and programming is a fascination I discovered as a graduate student at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. My projects don’t always come out the way I anticipate, but that’s not always a bad thing. Part of this work is an experiment in randomness. I believe that something is interesting if it doesn’t always act as predicted, or if it incorporates an element of surprise. By giving up some of the control and allowing interesting accidents to happen, I can sometimes come up with something exciting, if it doesn’t result in a dreaded short circuit.
Most museum or art gallery attendees are not prepared to interact with the art. I find that children have no fear when it comes to interacting with my art pieces. They seem to understand how to play with them.
