WallFold - 2003

This installation analyzes personal space in the contemporary reality of portable computes and wireless communication. It conveys a more sensitive and complex environment than the typical modernist white cube.
The physical sculpture tries to generate an ambiguous spatial condition: smooth and flexible folds between inside and outside, open and closed. The space thus becomes continuous and dynamic.
I used six pairs of servomotors connected by flexible bands to create a smooth surface. The motors alternated between two positions (0°, 180°), stretching the binary ON/ OFF positions into a continuous transition, a whole grayscale or gradient between 1 and 0.
