biennale Interieur - kortrijk, Belgium - 2012
is a large-scale suspended installation that is articulated using data from the surface of water. A repurposed Microsoft Kinect was used to collect three-dimensional data from wave action on the surface of Lake Superior. This data is used to articulate the mechanical installation consisting of 486 individual servomotors. The complex and subtle movements on the surface of the water are simulated within the installation by the servomotors moving according to the collected data. This version of the installation was commissioned for Future Primitives a group exhibition at the 2012 Biennale Interieur, Kortrijk, Belgium.
