Algorithm X and Y

(2007) steel, Nitinol wire, electrics, petri dishes, acrylic, optics, light, table

This light projecting mechanism responds to the movement of people around the object and moves large Petri dishes of coloured pigments along the X and Y axis. The movement is generated by nitinol wire and the resulting image in the Petri dish is projected onto the ceiling of the exhibition space. The object resembles early scientific apparatus and alludes to the relationship between the microscopic and gargantuan images within the universe.
