In the work “Wavelength /nm” the workings of an analogue spectrophotometer (an instrument used in chemical quantitative analysis) are reconstructed. Absorption v wavelength readings are plotted using Processing and Opensource programming language to create a live data driven generative drawing.
In “Ferromagnetic lunarscape”, a pulse width modulated electrical current transferred to a number of electromagnets cause a lattice drawing of ferromagnetic dust to expand and contract in regular mirroring movements. The pulse width modulating circuit generates square wave audio signals which are amplified throughheadphones. These accumulations and erosions of forms are suggestive of moonscapes, eco-
