This work is a voice in the debate on the role of the unaware ‘subcreator’ in the creative process. Living organism is treated as a source of data, used here as an artistic means.
Movements of an aquarium fish are traced by two cameras and transposed into a generative three-dimensional sculpture. The seemingly chaotic forces of nature get digitalised and algorithmically transformed. A statistical transposition of the movements into an object allowed the artist to produce a few 3D prints exhibited alongside the aquarium. The accompanying projection showed the object currently being ‘carved’ by the movements of the fish. The installation offers a good example of how technology can serve to broaden our perception of beauty, uncovering previously unreachable layers of reality and providing us with an interface between our senses and the unperceivable.
