Artist Statement:


    My principal interest is to create artworks that incorporate visual, audio, and interaction design aspects with elements of surprise or randomness. I treat programming languages and computer hardware as means of expressing myself and of exploring technical possibili­ ties. The design of interaction is especially important to me, because it evokes a physical and intellectual reaction from viewers, engaging them in a creative dialog with my artwork. This dialog sets a stage to confront my own ideas with those of viewers. It often transforms my artwork into creations beyond my own expectations, empowering viewers’ own creative capabilities.


Technical Information:


    Virtual & Real: K-Dron and Light is the first project from my new series, Virtual & Real. It was inspired by Janusz Kapusta’s K-Dron shape and its luminous properties when stimulated by light. The project connects the viewer with a virtual space through interaction of a mouse and a virtual light in a three-dimensional, digital environment composed of K-Dron walls. The combinations of K-Drons and light evoke unique, mosaic-like images, which, as they leave traces of color, create an ever-changing, spontaneous, and abstract blend of two- and three-dimensional compositions.
    Instructions
    Your mouse is directly connected to a virtual light and sound in the world of K-Drons. Slowly move the mouse left and right to change the position of the light and move it quickly to trigger various anima­ tions and patterns of the K-Dron walls. Technical requirements: at least 32MB 3D graphics card, Pentium 4 processor, and Shockwave player.
    This project was made possible in part by grants from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
