Just as a map depicts the geographical pathways of the earth, my work seeks to echo the motion of living organisms travelling through a given space. This series of interactive sculptures blends the aesthetics of internal, microscopic vessels with the larger concept of living beings journeying through external environments. Creating a sculptural riff on the mechanisms of childhood toys such as rainmakers and mazes, each form of motion holds an opportunity for investigative play and interactivity. Shifting the focus towards the audience, my sculptures require spectators to activate the different modes of movement. Conceptually, these outcomes look at the outward movement of partakers as they cause the sculptures to move, echoing the concealed bodily movements that simultaneously occur during these actions. This invitation for participants to become physically involved with the work sheds light on the possibilities of creating a more informal and engaging exhibition experience.
