we showed this robotic art project in bushwick, brooklyn @ stanhope cellar studios, -‘a light in the basement’- curated by nicholas chatfield-taylor via todd p.

we filmed lili knitting the monofilament mesh at the center of the work, and tracked the needles’ movement. we mounted blue lasers on linear actuators and servos, and programmed the motors with the needles’ position data. the table top is the shape of the room.

a separate robot toggled a low wattage light bulb to present different lighting conditions.
