I am thrilled to announce my project, A Machine For Living In, at the Foster Art Gallery at Westminster College, August 28 – October 13th.
A Machine For Living In is a digital media installation using smart technologies to explore the home as a site of intimate life. Incorporating video, sound, and sculpture, the project showcases machine observers and their memories from within the artist’s home. Cameras and microphones monitor inhabitants while wireless sensors track concrete physical interactions: doors opening, cups and bowls in use, showers taken. Using sensor fusion and machine learning techniques, the house becomes an observing instrument. I address the home, its inhabitants, and the relationships within as networks of communication and exchange. What emerges is a contemporary portrait of the everyday.
Exhibition: August 28 – October 13th, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm
Where: Foster Art Gallery, Westminster College
Opening + Gallery Talk: September 12, 4:30-6:00 PM
