Prototype for dreaming object (2010)
electronics, stepper motors, various plastics, aluminum, camera and projector

The motors' movements are responses to the previous pattern of color shapes perceived by the computer's camera eye. After each action, the system pauses to reflect on what it has created, and decides how to proceed based on the shape of each color it sees. It does not know the complete shape of the plastic colors it moves, or that it is actually affecting its own state. Rather, it observes and sings to itself as though in a dream.
