  • Description

    The series of works titled Animal Warmth are about movement and timing. Animal Wamrth (#28) is an installation for 28 carbon filament light bulbs that are controlled by real-time software to express a never-ending, never-repeating variety of moods. These moods span synchrony and asynchrony, phasing, rhythmic correspondence and trickery. Along with the flashing light, there is a sound associated with each bulb. Each bulb rings with a unique pure tone as it comes to life and fades out. These frequencies shift with the moods of the installation.
