Kinetic Object, 100x200x40cm
Techniques: Spring steel wire and knitted copper wire, Nitinol-mechanism, Raschendorfer Shift-shield, Arduino-microcontroller, Ultrasonic Sensor
The sculptures “reconfigure(d) – object 1” and “reconfigure(d) – object 2” are part of a series of kinetic objects dealing with elusive states of consciousness and the translation of brain activity measurements into rhythms.
The measurements were taken between sleep and wakefulness.
With this body of work I am studying the plasticity of human cognitive style in relation to artistic and scientific research practice, questioning the idea of predictability of human behavior.
