Sentient Tech
Current Practice My body of work moving forward will be an integration of my recent ART installation practice and my on-going research into technology that aspires to sentience and is autonomously adaptive. These new installations, or “Sentient Observatories”, will implement a novel analog/digital hybrid technology that autonomously re-structures itself based on the continuous, real-time, multi-model input of sensory stimulation from people’s interactions. The intent of these works will be to create an experience that augments people’s ability to understand themselves in an ever richer and expanding context of diverse people set in a shared physical world.

Sentient Science
Current Practice The integration of my ART installation practice and my sentient TECHnology into Sentient Observatories makes a claim that must be rigorously tested. Moving forward, my art, cultural and technical practice will succeed or fail, not solely on its aesthetic or functional merits, but also on its ability to approach sentience, augmenting itself as it interacts with the world. The science of Sentient Observatories exists to test these hypotheses, not merely to publish results, but to refine future iterations of both my practice and that of others.
