we showed this robotic art project in bushwick, brooklyn april ’11 @ stanhope cellar studios, -‘a light in the basement’- curated by nicholas chatfield-taylor via todd p. we filmed lili knitting the monofilament mesh at the center of the work, and tracked the needles’ movement. we mounted blue lasers on linear actuators and servos, then […]

feedback f s f -r s ns

to view our flickr set feedback f s f -r s ns is composed of two robots, and is in the form of a closed system with interlaced feedback, i.e, the output of one robot is the input of the other. the system generates visual compositions as the robots alter their environments and influence each […]

two new works opening 1.28.11 in greenpoint

minimal audible fields feedback f s f -r s ns feedback f s f -r s ns we’re a part of the st. cecilia sound art project that runs this friday, january 28, from 8-10, and this saturday, january 29, from 2-9, at 21 monitor st., brooklyn, ny (greenpoint). directions and map below. the show […]

refraction oscillator

recorded in the park at sunset, under high magnification, natural light filtered through undulating leaves, refracting as it moves across a surface of reflective, crystalline nanostructures.

transflection event

documentation of a device we’ve developed for casting refracted light into large spaces fronted by glass. the project was inspired by looking at the reflective and transparent properties/complex picture planes on the windows of empty/transitional spaces in nyc. the illuminated surface area here is approximately 10’x10′. both the light source and refractive media are in […]


“flux-maps-flux” is an art project created for the ‘science fair’ show at flux factory/nyc in june 2010. for this work, we built a hand-held, portable emf sensor to explore the electromagnetic topography of flux factory. participants were asked to walk the site with the sensor (seen at the end of this clip). the sensor emits […]

synchronous displacement (excerpt)

synchronous displacement is an iterative process of translation from light to sound to vibration. in this floor mounted artwork, shifting patterns of light in an array of LEDs below a diffusing medium are tracked by software. the patterns are translated into a sound composition whose components are based on recordings made while constructing and prototyping […]


1.1 is a kinetic, networked, responsive light sculpture that takes EMF (electro magnetic field — field) readings from the former Flux Factory location (38-38 43rd St., L.I.C., NYC – ), and transmits them in real time to the new Flux Factory (39-31 29th St, L.I.C., NYC – where they are transformed into moving […]
