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.
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.
Speaking of robots, here’s a fun picture of Chico Maurtrie and I from 2002. We were programming the sculpture in the picture, named Skelli, for a video shoot at Chico’s studio in Brooklyn.
Chico’s latest work, the Totemobile, was recently featured in Wired Magazine. Video below. Pretty darned cool.
