Wirescapes 1.0

From Rhizome Artbase

Description

I am seeking freedom from technique through a process of free and unconscious interaction with a machine that can translate idea into form. I am not interested in illustrating my way of seeing but rather in facilitating access to a larger art idea and the possibility of seeing differently (from the Wirescapes user manual).
Wirescapes 1.0 is an exploration of the machine as conduit to the art idea. Interaction with the Virtual Sculpture Interface allows for the generation of infinite form and fleeting moments of beauty and chaos. The VSI provides for the creation of a digital "action painting" and presents opportunities for the user to see what is in the moment and to capture that instant of 'seeing differently
