Infinite steady states: Most of these works are constructed by using algorithmic or stochastic processes in realtime to create never repeating, constantly changing experiences.

Laser Works

2017 Spline

Laser Installation

120 meters of thin fabric are suspended from the ceiling to form a curved curtain. Four lasers in the corners of the room project lines onto it. The curtain's shape has been calculated using the mathematical principle of spline interpolation. By tracing the surface with multiple moving laser beams, a complex geometric figure of intersecting planes emerges, built of light and fog. Movements are synchronised with sonic events. Sound and lasers are controlled in realtime by an algorithmic process, creating an infinite number of variations over the course of the exhibition period. More...

2016 Fall

Laser Installation

Centred in the room is a ten meter wide cubic structure, suspended from the ceiling, consisting of 180 squares of fabric. The distribution of the squares has generated via a random algorithm. Lasers draw fluctuating shapes of light above the heads of the visitors, illuminating the structure and the walls behind it, floating through it like water. More...
