- Responsive Environment + Kinetic Sculpture
Air-filled plastic sculptures laced with sensors and LED illuminators breath, filter and re-project data harvested from outside as patterns light and sound.
"Pneus, exists in a world of second nature, a world made by human hands but governed also by electricity, and gravity. Its roots extend into the subterranean world of infrastructure, and its canopy drinks sunlight. By suspending Pneus off the ground, overhead, we up-end the earth to expose its roots, and let those who walk underneath the installation experience the rhythms Pneus extracts from the street and the building as dappled light and shadow, much like dappled shade on the forest floor. Like an air-plant, Pneus adheres lightly to its host, drawing rhythms from the heart of the building and releasing them into the exterior as a kind of music."
