Art That Tracks Human Behavior And Traffic Patterns
Artist uses quasi-scientific methods to create sculptures.
New York based artist Meridith Pingree creates peculiar, reactive sculptures of people and spaces based on human behavior and traffic patterns.
She speaks about her artwork on her site:
My artwork physically tracks human behavior and traffic patterns using quasi-scientific, homespun, reactive sculptures. I use sensors to pick up on people’s energy and movement throughout a space. My work exists as amplifications of this subtle energy, creating unconventional, complex portraits of people and spaces. For example: kinetic links of a centipede-like creature respond individually to create a live mutating curve. Robotic, rainbow colored gel pens selectively record human traffic patterns. Personalities captured by subtle head movements are frozen in rapid-prototyped sculptures.
