2006 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
The Parallel Series is a proposed exhibition of sculptural works built from active electronic components. If successful, each work will possess the aesthetic merits of any well-crafted object. Additionally, each piece will be designed to reveal an energy distribution made uniquely possible by active (i.e. functional) electronic design. In other words, analog electrical engineering will be used as formal media that functions to conduct, resist or modulate energy within the work of art. The controlled flow of electronic energy will define the concept for each piece; and the simultaneous use of electronics as a formal and functional medium will be the primary contribution of this work.
