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.
Don’t let her good looks fool you – this charm actually has demonic power. Rattle comes with pushbutton to connect to a microcontroller. Plaster, paper, mashe, hair extensions, leds, wire, SPST pushbutton.
