Light Emitting Studies

Taking cues from baby nursery designs, these sculptures represent early investigations into the complexities of care-taking. Relying on both cerebral and sensual faculties, I combined tiny blinking electrical circuits with simple materials. Sensors integral to the circuits respond to ambient light and change the frequency at which the lights blink. I free-form soldered the circuits into sculptural compositions and then augmented them with art materials, brightly colored trash, and cheap craft supplies. The resultant amalgamations respond to the environment, signaling tenderly and playfully to the viewer.
