Artist Statement:


    This work was inspired initially by traditional Japanese Zen gardens. As the sand trace proceeds at a slow, quiet, meditative pace, time becomes an important element of the work. Drawing on paper, or tracing sand, takes time, and has its own rythms. I have also explored the possibility of composing and synthesizing music, by linking space, time and sound. The current version of Ulysse is an investigation of the sets of rules that allow exploration of this continuum. Victor diNovi built the mahogany plinth. David Bothman helped with motion control. And the music was developed in collaboration with lannis Zannos .
