Jelly Form Sculpture
At the NewFangle art show
Herbst International Exhibition Hall San Francisco, CA



Jelly Form visually, aurally and tactilely illuminates the elastic boundary between the body and the inanimate, questioning our relationships to the lifelike. Pressure on Jelly Form releases light with the same optical mechanism used to control information display on LCD screens. However, Jelly Form does not release light in response to the measured, numerical control of a computer program; rather, physical contact with Jelly Form mirrors our existence as dynamic, living information patterns that are growing and responding in an unpredictable world. Jelly Form is a reflection of that which is not computed; it is a visualization of the self.
