Tracers & Flares

Tracers & Flares 2011

In Tracers & Flares, I create temporary installations moved by microcontroller-driven motors and sensors. These installations, while started by me, drive themselves and unfold spontaneously. I condense them into a series of photo/print/drawings before deconstructing them entirely and using the components to build a new installation. These photo/print/drawings are distillations of fleeting performances often unseen by spectators but contacted through the print artifacts, as well as intertextual evidence of a building relationship between the various events. They explore how seeming static space is constantly shifting and fluxing, making us realize how much the “now” exists to us through the accumulated traces of “before”.
