I’m back again! Passed my mid-term evaluation, so from now on I’ll have more time to blog.
Thought I’d share with you what took me away from you for the past week - I know some of you have been asking about what I’ve recently been working on in my art.
I’m still working around the theme “humans becoming dependent on technology”, and “the new human”. Long story short; this work illustrates a poetic image of that subject. The thin, fragile spinal and ribcage, and the transparent skin symbolize the dependence on technology the human body is experiencing.
It’s a wearable piece with a LEDstrip inside the spine, controlled by an Arduino. The LEDs are programmed in a pulsating light, kind of representing a pulse of technique.
Unfortunately I didn’t have a model and proper equipment available yesterday to do a decent shoot, and I still need to shoot a video of it in which you can see how the LEDs work, and see the piece being worn on a body. This work is definitely not something I’m réally proud of, but I’m pretty satisfied for achieving this along with a lot of paintings, sketches, programming, and setting up an exhibition in one week. I’ll post the end results on my portfolio site :)
