SHARING THE FUTURE

  1. A kinetic sculpture that responds to goodness.

    Holding the door for someone, recommending a book, letting someone ahead of you in line- these are little things that people do for each other. Our friends at Bombas asked us to create a piece that responded to small everyday acts of human kindness. Bombas created an online campaign that allowed users to submit deeds to inspire people this holiday season. We created a moving physical sculpture that brought this campaign to life.

    The Good Deed Machine lived in the window of the Gap store at 54th and 5th for 2 weeks. Passers by could place their hand on the glass and watch the gears and pistons of the machine startup. The activity of the machine would then produce a good deed, written by online users, for them to carry out this Holiday. The end result was a playful and kinetic way to visualize the flow of goodwill during the Holidays.

    The machine was created with a combination of classic automata techniques in combination with arduino, stepper motors, and camera tracking. The central cinder framework ran the installation and coordinated the movements of all the components.

    Horizontalité X
    Verticalité Y
    Profondeur Z
    Temps T
    Quatre lettres pour décrire le mouvement
    d’un point dans l’espace, et pour déployer
    un territoire imaginaire. Paradoxes mathématiques,
    illusions typographiques, métaphores en mouve-
    ment dessinent les paysages de cette exposition.
    Arpenter un espace numérique luxuriant, toucher
    du doigt des algorithmes, éprouver la matière
    de la lumière y sont autant de territoires imaginaires
    à explorer. Un parcours comme la traversée d’une
    nature revisitée. coïncidence entre géométrique
    et organique, entre réel et virtuel.

  5. #WordsOfData is a series of medium format pieces that, with the use of mapping projection techniques, focuses on the contrast between an overload of information and the void produced by new technologies. Online data, from Twitter to be exact, is the main raw material. Online data, from Twitter to be exact, is the main raw material in #WordsOfData. Each message is represented with a geometric figure, a dot or a line generally, with properties related with the message itself, like its relevance in the social network.
