Nucleus

Kinetic sculpture, 2009/2010

Nucleus is a kinetic interactive sculpture that searches location-specific internet news and commentary for keywords defined by the artist, in order to visualize the social and economic state of society. Through high-speed rotation, a line of light emitting diodes is transformed into a three-dimensional body. It changes its form with every incoming internet report and represents the continuous information flow in digital media.

His focus is on the physical form of a sculpture enlivened by mechanics combined with algorithmic intelligence.
