Marco Pinter: Fragmented Reality: Research at the Intersection of Sculpture, Media, Movement and Technology

Marco Pinter (UC Santa Barbara): $2,000 for Fragmented Reality: Research at the Intersection of Sculpture, Media, Movement and Technology. Graduate Arts Grants

A series of installation works will be developed utilizing a synergy of kinetic sculpture, human movement and projected digital graphic objects in the exploration of the underlying mechanisms of perception. This research seeks to exploit artifacts of low-level visual perception, and expand on the long tradition of Op Art by integrating large-scale robotically-controlled sculptural elements in close synchrony with purely digital objects. The research expands upon the artist’s prior work by facilitating a deeper exploration of materials, content and intention, by both the artist and interdisciplinary collaborators.
