DRAWING MACHINES 

 

Floating World
Artisphere, VA March 6 – 31 2013


Floating World is an installation that recreates the experience of cloud gazing inside and explores our relationship with the natural and virtual worlds. The movement of this synthetic cloud is recorded in a drawing that evolves over the course of the exhibition.

By moving throughout the artificial habitat created in Artisphere’s Town Hall, viewers are given the power to affect the direction of the wind. Visitor movement triggers motion sensors attached to fans that when activated, push the clouds around the space, altering the drawing below.
