Cryptid – Animatronic light sculpture by Michael Candy

Created by Michael Candy, ‘Cryptid’ is an animatronic light sculpture that uses 18 linear actuators and open source Phoenix hexapod code to walk through a space. As human and robotic, natural and synthetic are increasingly amalgamated, the projects questions whether machines could be considered a subspecies.

RE:PLACES is a complex 1.70-meter-high robotic apparatus that excretes the plastic objects and then deposits them around the exhibition space like three-dimensional brushstrokes.

Kinetic sculpture composed of hammers and light bulbs invites the viewer to contemplate this delicate balance of complex fragility.

Created by Michael Candy, ‘Cryptid’ is an animatronic light sculpture that uses 18 linear actuators and open source Phoenix hexapod code to walk through a space. As human and robotic, natural and synthetic are increasingly amalgamated, the projects questions whether machines could be considered a subspecies.

Created by Philipp Schmitt, “Why Would You Want to Picture It” is a sculpture and sound installation engaging with opacity of ‘black box’ machine learning algorithms.

Created by Refik Anadol, “Melting Memories” is a series of digital artworks that explore materiality of remembering by offering new insights into the representational possibilities of EEG data collected on the neural mechanisms of cognitive control.

The CAN/HOLO team is headed to Montréal for the 18th edition of MUTEK. A celebration of the best and brightest in audiovisual performance, we’ll be hosting ‘HOLO Encounters’ with several of the festival’s featured artists.

A meditation on several recent Troika projects that render cellular automata with dice and anodised aluminium rather than pixels on a screen. Realized over the last four years, these works demonstrate how a prolonged investigation into a rudimentary approach can yield rich dividends.

Created by Patten Studio and currently on display at SHoP Architects, Lift is comprised of 24 geometric petals attached to a single spine. Each petal, actuated using a shape memory alloy known as nitinol, can move up and down silently in response to motion it detects.

The latest iteration of a decade-long investigation into modular construction systems by Canadian Artist Jesse Jackson, Marching Cubes is an algorithm-inspired syntax for building volumes from 3D printed blocks.

Created as a collaboration between Hypersonic and Plebian Design, Constructive Interference is a sculpture designed to engage passer-bys using the wonder of moire patterns. Installation is composed of two large patterned sheets of steel, designed to create a rapidly changing visual interference effect as viewers pass by.

Our Time is the latest large-scale installation by United Visual Artists, investigating the subjective experience of the passing of time. The installation is comprised of 21 bespoke mechanical pendulums that swing at a pace apparently unhindered by the laws of nature and where no single time measurement applies.

Created by Félix Luque Sánchez and Iñigo Bilbao, Memory Lane is a sculptural representation and investigation into memory and space by questioning human capacity of generating fiction, either by means of a simple child’s game or of a complex technological process.

Created by Dana Zelig, Traces project explores the concept of programming everyday materials, a form of “physical programming” where objects are “made to act” on some form following specific instructions.

Created by David Bowen and titled “46°41’58.365″ lat. -91°59’49.0128″ long. @ 30m”, is a collection of five CNC routed clear acrylic cylinders capturing the water surface data from the source location.

Created by Matteo Crivella, Resonating Rotation of a Rigid Body is a sonic apparatus that combines sound frequency, vibration and physical property of materials.

Created by Mo H. Zareei, Rasper, Mutor and Rippler are a series of mechatronic sound-sculptures inspired by Brutalist architecture. The instruments are grouped into three different categories, based on the material and sound production mechanism they employ.

Created by Paolo Salvagione, String Fountain is a kinetic sculpture that uses propulsion to elevate a continuous piece of string into the air.

Created by Felix Luque, DWI Modular is a system comprised of 10 rhombic dodecahedrons, geometrical objects part of the family of ‘Space- filling polyhedra’: shapes that can be assembled to generate a tessellation of an infinite space, acting as building blocks for a sculpture generator.

The Air Above is a new project by environmental designer Michael Pecirno that explores how public sculpture can find form and purpose entirely from its context.

Minibuilders is a research project comprised of a family of small-scale construction robots designed to perform diverse tasks, linked to the different phases of construction, finally working together as a family towards the implementation of a single structural outcome.

425 hanging pendants located in the new HQ of the Center for Strategic and International Studies visualise global data.

Captives is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures by Quayola and a contemporary homage to Michelangelo’s unfinished series “Prigioni” (1513-1534) and his technique of “non-finito”.

Derived from passion for baseball, Teehan+Lax Labs set out to create an iPad app to display Baseball stats but with a slight twist. The iPad cover that includes graphs cut in acrylic acts as data sculpture accompanying data displayed on the iPad.

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez’s ongoing exploration of digital fabrication and recent commission to produce a new work, titled Venus of Google, for Design Exquis. CAN was fortunate enough to engage him in a freewheeling conversation about the undertaking.

Created by David Bowen, Underwater is an installation created for INTERIEUR 2012. It uses a Microsoft Kinect to collected real-time surface data from moving wave patterns and translates them into this large scale installation comprised of hundreds of servo-motors.
