in-situ improvised kinetic and sound installation
diverse materials and objects found on-site, rope, stretch cord, iron columns as electromagnets, HVAC sound distribution system, mechanical actuators, stepper motors, custom microcontroller network, custom software
A constantly evolving vocabulary of ideas, techniques and materials for large-scale site-specific installations. These works are systems in which electro-physical devices, circuitry and computer code are cut-and-pasted to generate complex behaviours. Spiderlogic combines ad-hoc architecture, intuitive physics, and informal engineering.

2016in-situ improvised kinetic and sound installation
This iteration of the Irrational Orchestration series is a room-scale kinetic sound installation with visual, structural and/or sonic activation of all gallery surfaces gallery surfaces (wall, ceiling, floor). Undulating suspended objects interact with mechanically modulated light to generate a soundtrack of arhythmic/rhythmic tension.
Headlands research / Convolutions series
2014residency research, prototypes, maquettes, experiments in electromagneticks and architecture
Objects dance erratically in an intense, fluctuating electromagnetic field of a coiled extension cord, the head and tail of which are plugged into a custom three-headed oroboros cable. Research from a summer residency at the Headlands Centre in California.
Headlands research: sound / building studies for new work
2014residency 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.
2014 - currentcollaborative open-source hardware research project
The neuromime is an electronic model of an organic nerve cell that can be interconnected in chains and loops.
