Our interests lay in the dynamics of improvisation as observed and experienced in rapid prototyping and group collaborative workshops, as demonstrated through ASMbly.
My work for ASMbly will be part of on going research to develop the centrepiece of the existing artwork 'Ultiverse'.
States of Mind Investigates theories on how hormones influence emotions.
An investigation into if and how biological structures on the microscale can be applied to macroscopic architecture.
Aoife is a biomechanical mermaid puppet which I am developing to explore how a mermaid would swim if they existed, with reference to human and aquatic mammal skeletons. The aim is to undertake this work experimentally and cooperatively as part of the Lab.
The project aims to recreate some of the earliest models of the stethoscope and do a variety of trials to find out what length and wood type would have been ‘optimal’ for the purpose of the stethoscope (listening to the heart and lungs).
Using local plant life to make anthotypes and discarded objects to create photograms, new maps will be made of the area around the ASMbly building. These maps will create a permanent record of the transitory period of ASMbly.
I will be making biomimetic sculptures that model light absorption in relation to foliage distribution at various levels within a forest canopy. These acrylic sculptures can then be used to make photograms that record light absorption of different living structures on their own and in combination. Also, making replica Victorian Amputation kit and Prosthetics for them to be used on. (If both together)
I’m investigating how to use microscope cameras to work with extreme close ups of the body in performance. ASMbly will be the first step in exploring this. I would like to use the Lab to learn how to take samples from my own body and look at them under a microscope, and perhaps start to work with a microscope camera.
I will be continuing my research during the whole lab, and running a workshop on the subject. also willing to participate in other work going on during the Lab.
I come with a jumble of ideas and half-questions... and am happy to respond to others’ starting points. I propose that we locate our area of inquiry through scratching our heads together, talking and tryouts. I am interested in the dynamics of collaboration itself.
