Neuromimes

2014 - current

collaborative open source hardware research project

The neuromime is an electronic model of an organic nerve cell that can be interconnected in chains and loops.

IO / spiderlogic

2013 - current

research project

IO (formerly Irrational Orchestration) is a series of works developed broadly as schematic guidelines for improvised installations, rather than pre-determined finished artwork. Electromagnetism, intuitive/ad hoc architectural structures, absurdist extensions of building infrastructural systems (HVAC, electrical), hardware neural networks.

Blood, Brains, and Other Trains (colloquium)
Emerging Collaborations & Camaraderie in the Arts and Sciences

October 2016

colloquium, curatorial project

A four day socially oriented colloquium I directed and organized at Concordia University. Blood, Brains and Other Trains looked at common interests between the arts and sciences.

Dissolutions

September 2016

curatorial project, research project + exhibition

An experimental 3 month long artistic research residency and exhibition project examining the connection between Earth and computation with the work of Berlin-based artist Martin Howse, curated by Peter Flemming in collaboration with OBORO and Perte de Signal in Montréal with support from the Goethe Institut .

Barracks Bricollage / Casernes couper-coller
Headlands research: sound / building studies for new work

2014

residency research, prototypes, maquettes

Documentation of studies and experiments in sound/acoustics and architecture/building using materials found mostly on site as an artist in residence at the Headlands Center, California, summer 2014.

Oroboros of Alternating Current
Headlands research: Convolutions series, experiment no. 1

2014

residency research, prototypes, maquettes

Objects dance erratically in an intense, fluctuating electromagnetic field of a coiled extension cord, the head and tail of which are plugged into a three-headed oroboros connector. Research from a summer residency at the Headlands Centre in California.

Public Metal / Lines and Coils

2014 - current

research project

Collaborative project with Christine Swintak. Documentation of working prototype and experiments from research residencies in Ljubljana and Prague.

Instrumentation demonstrations

2011 - 2012

series of experiments

In-studio rehearsals for what would become the a site variable kinetic audio installations Instrumentation and Instrumentation Variations. Video documentation showing experiments, maquettes and techniques coming out of a long-term research project entitled Vibrations and Waves.

Vibrations and Waves

2010

research project

A compendium of experiments in electromagnetism, mechanical resonance, physics of sound vibrations. Documentation of work in the studio, residencies and exhibitions.

Lazymode

2007 - 2008

research project

A general system that can be applied to artworks (as opposed to a discrete artwork in and of itself) Lazymode imbues a network of machines with the capacity for extreme relaxation.
