No Humans Allowed

No Humans Allowed is a collection of installations and performances that is an ongoing exploration in the design of mechatronic personalities and unconventional human-robot interaction modalities. No Humans Allowed is a multi-stage meta project that first consists of building a group mechatronic personalities. The second stage consists of performances with the mechatronic personalities while the final stage…

Yin~Yang

Yin~Yang is an interactive, audio-visual installation that examines balance and friction between two opposing forces. The meta-project Yin~Yang has been shown several times in 2015-16 with each iteration drawing from different source material to create a varying, yet unified, experience. While the underlaying media and exact presentation varies from gallery to gallery, Yin~Yang is always bound together…

Computer Music

Computer Music is a mechatronic ensemble of floppy disk drives (FDD), hard disk drives (HDD), stepper motors, and Compact Disk Read Only Memory (CD-ROM) drives which are controlled by a MacBook Pro through four Arduino microcontrollers. The pitched FDDs and CDROMs are amplified using single-coil guitar pickups. The HDD spindles continuously spin creating a source of…

Cathode Ray Tubes

Cathode Ray Tubes builds a feedback loop out of four cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions (TVs) and four Retrono synthesizers: modern knock-offs of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game consoles which have been slightly modified.  The Retrono interfaces are sensitive to changes in the electromagnetic field surrounding them resulting in a vulnerability to the…

Digital Rain

Digital Rain is a data driven installation which explores the crossroads of generative music, emergence patterns, data sonification, and technology driven systems of expression. 192 electromagnetic relay switches, broken out into twenty-four units of eight, are arranged in a grid and mounted on the gallery wall. The relays are orchestrated by six Arduino Megas which…
