Replication of System, 2008


EVL MFA graduate, AnnMarie Cernoch will showcase a series of animated shorts and discusses her approach to developing art and technology at the Illinois Women Video Artists, Illinois State Museum, Chicago Gallery.

Cernoch will discuss Replication of System, a project creating a spatial circuit through user input from contact sensors extended in space and attached to surfaces it occupies. A replication system represents the flow of information, which is expressed via electrical impulses to a central core. Vine-like appendages radiating from the sculpture take on the function of sound sensitive ears to interactively communicate with the audience.

The presentation is free to the public.
