Linking Everyday Rhythms to Artworks Through
I will discuss the role electronic and interactive technologies play within my artistic practice. Through the use of analog sensors and open source software, I perceive the unconscious rhythms of everyday life. I detect heartbeats and footsteps in order to create a newfound awareness of the body and subsequently reconnect the body to the here and now. I will discuss individual artworks in detail, including a new robotic sound work created in Prague.
