KINESIS

ki·ne·sis/kΙ™ΛˆnΔ“sis/
Noun:   
1. Movement; motion.
2. An undirected movement of a cell, organism, or part in response to an external stimulus.


"Kinesis" is a giant pattern-making machine consisting of 25 groups of rotating arms and a controller. Each group has 4 members. Each arm is told to go to one of those angles - either randomly or in predesigned patterns. All groups perform identical actions.

While resting, the arms signal to each other visually and with very soft tones, creating a subtly changing visual and musical environment.


I am ever grateful to the Linden Arts Endowment for granting me use of this sim to create this piece and two other new full-sim installations. This work would not have been otherwise possible, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH LEA!
