Special thanks to Chico MacMurtrie, Sven Travis of Parsons The New School of Design, the National Art Museum of China and the organizers of the Synthetic Times exhibition.

I was honored to participate in the exhibition, and delighted to meet so many incredible artists, including Verdensteatret, Kurt Hentschläger, f18 institute, Edwin van der Heide, Blendid, Herwig Weiser, and David Rokeby.

For more information on 16 Birds, see this page on the Amorphic website and this page from an earlier exhibition in New York City.

Chico MacMurtrie – Birds at Andrew Edlin Gallery

Two photos of Chico MacMurtrie‘s inflatable Birds sculpture at the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York City. This is a beautiful piece, which consists of 16 inflatable robotic devices. I spent a few days programming this piece for Chico in the gallery, and we snapped these images on Chico’s iPhone.

I’m very impressed with the direction of Chico’s new work, which has been getting a good deal of press attention lately, too. It’s nice to see Chico’s work getting the attention I think it deserves.

If you are in the city, I recommend a trip to one of the pieces he has up now.
