residency research, prototypes, maquettes
Photos of research-in-process while in residency at NKD - Nordisk Kunstnarsenter in Dale, Norway, Winter 2016.
light/sound pendulum experiment
solar cells as audio input
improvised charcoal oven
Oven made from tin can to carbonize (turn into charcoal) various organic materials in wood-stove and/or open fire. These materials were tested as
possible lightbulb filament - carbonized string
Carbonized string made in improvised charcoal oven (above).
Charcoal made in improvised oven (above) being tested for electrical properties (electrical resistance) and suitability as incandescent light-bulb filament. (It was not suitable).
light projection experiments
Studio experimentation in simple optics.
Studio workstation for electronics, programming.
Exterior of studio at night, showing projection experiments.
Spiderlogic. Ad-hoc architecture, intuitive physics, informal engineering.
Floating ladders, chairs, tables; aperiodic perturbations; mechanically modulated shadow; arhythmic/rhythmic tension.
Testing material and acoustic qualities of various objects.
Documentation of studio rehearsals, research images, materials tests for Irrational Orchestration.
Prototype for axon/vibrational strutcural element.
