Robot Recipe: Rabbits at AmDC Built

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

robot_rabbit_003

Robot Recipes: Rabbit will be on display for the next two weeks at the American Design Club Built Show.

“Built is starting from scratch. Built is the process. And a method. Built is a decision. And a material. Built is the tools we use. And how we use them. Those who innovate a way past limitations deserve a stage of appreciation during NYCxDesign 2018.”

Built will be on view and open to the public May 11th - 23rd. Hours each day are 11am - 7 pm (Sundays 12 - 6pm).

There are a bunch of great designs and products showing there.

Hereafter Monument

Hereafter Institute Podium

The Hereafter Institute had a great show a few weeks back at LACMA and a great article written by the LA Times. As well as a nice shot of the Hereafter Monument.

The monument is a sleek, slanted, rectangular object, invoking an gravestone. The glass front displays social media data from an encoded vinyl record playing above. Literally, a physical record.

The object is deceptively simple, a lot of technology is stored inside. And was quite a challenging design/build.

Phloq

Phloq Installation

I had the pleasure to work on a great sound installation called Phloq with Paul Geluso and Suzanne Thorpe.

The installation is at St Cornelius Chapel on Governors Island (http://govisland.com/html/visit/directions.shtml). And will be viewable every Saturday & Sunday, Jun 15 through Jul 14 (noon to 6pm).

Phloq Installation

At St. Cornelius Chapel on Governors Island, Phloq is a multichannel work composed to evoke the sensorial experience of a flock of birds taking off. Via its physical diffusion, Phloq creates a provocative space that allows the listener to suspend their ties to previously known aural reference points, releasing them to a new sensorial interaction. Phloq’s content addresses issues of communication and interference, referencing the swirling mass of information we encounter on a daily basis. This event is part of 2013 New York Electronic Art Festival, in partnership with River To River Festival and Trinity Wall Street.
