  • AutoGene
    720 × 404
Giving the first impression of a simple commodity sculpture "AutoGene" lures the viewer into a false sense of security which is then at the flick of a switch rapidly dispelled. The seemingly mundane umbrellas are transformed into magical animated objects. The circular arrangement combined with the striking contrast produced as the umbrellas expand and contract, engender the formation of abstract ephemeral patterns which are seemingly governed by the accompanying music. Obliging the observer to re-evaluate the sculpture, inviting comparisons with dance and animation as the mechanical pixels complete their choreographed movement through time and space.
