MAKS @ Nicodema Plaza
MAKS performing on 3/22/18 at Sister Nicodema Plaza in Brooklyn, NY. It was a first to be out in the snow. Lots of logistical hurdles during this outing – the canvas fell over and knocked one of the censers onto an innocent bystander. We tied it to a tree and kept it moving. LEDs were impossible to perceive in the direct sunlight, but as a video it came together. Having the crowd participate (see last minute of documentation) was fun, and might be worth exploring that more.
MAKS @ West Village
Burning copal incense goes back to the days of the Aztecs. Cortes can suck it, the spirits don’t die!
This three foot tall sculpture is also a musical instrument. Sensors on the exposed spinal column are attached to a computer synthesizer. 8 notes to choose, full polyphony. Made of plaster, paper mache and painted with spray and oil paints. Nine pin DSUB connector for attaching to microcontroller.
