This video documents the proof of concept prototype.
This initial prototype displayed the qualities of an active water surface that matched the poetic concept that I had in mind.
Ben Faga, an art student and UROP worked with me to prototype a series of rotating rods with sculpted, reconfigurable cams.
The responsive and fluid nature of this surface and the kinetic play of the video upon it were a perfect embodiment of the qualities that I associate with flux and flow.
This prototype enabled me to share the concept more effectively and led to an invitation by the Weisman Museum of Art to commission this as a site-specific work for the permanent collection.
