strands is an interactive installation consisting of an array of computer generated strings projected onto an irregular surface which pull and rapidly push away with human interaction.

It features a monochromatic aesthetic and a metallic texture that over time, evolves into a characteristic resembling narrow stips of tape, web-like strands, or generating a completely new quality.

The behavior and physics of each strand change on its own accord. Going from tight and resilient harp strings, to the buoyant and weightless essence of aquatic plants. Fundamentally giving strands a lifelike and organic feel, but of an alien nature. Its appearance never repeats and is ever evolving.

Premiered at 2016 Next Art Night in Los Angeles, CA
