Winds of Time - Flashpoint Gallery

charcoal, pencil, erasers, Arduino, servo motors, sonar sensor, 3D printed pulleys, hardware

When a viewer walks in front of the work, a sonar sensor registers their position. Charcoal, pencils and erasers are spun to draw
haphazardly on the paper. Pulleys are raised and lowered depending on the distance of the viewer. A projection of historical photographs
of the area surrounding Flashpoint Gallery, Chinatown in Washington, DC are projected over top of the drawing.
As the exhibition progresses the historical images become less legible
by the accumulation of marks on paper.
