Manifest (Blink Twice)

Edition 1 of 5 “Manifest” is a series of data-driven sculptures based on electromyography (EMG) readings of fluctuating levels of electricity in the artist’s muscles. Neuromuscular activities associated with experiences of wonder were performed as facial expressions and bodily movements (smiling in delight, furrowing one’s brow to make sense, blinking twice in disbelief, frowning in confusion, gulping in surprise, squinting to see). Each activity produced unique EMG data that was translated into a curve using custom software written by the artist. Each curve serves as a profile for a different 3D printed sculpture. The project examines the potential for objects to embody human experience and to materialize the intangible. Manifest has been exhibited at the Beall Center for Art+Technology (Irvine), CURRENTS New Media Festival (Santa Fe), Capsule Gallery (Houston), Arena 1 (Santa Monica), Occurrence Gallery (Montréal), Paul Robeson Galleries (Newark), NYU Langone Medical Center Art Gallery (New York City), Grizzly Grizzly (Philadelphia), Chandra Cerrito Contemporary (Oakland), and ACRE Projects (Chicago).
