Irrational Orchestration

2013 - current

research project

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.
