As Machines Shine

As Machines Shine | by Mary Franck |

Working from reflection, refraction, and algorithmic form, I brought about this alien archipelago: topographic and laser cut it rises out of shallow water to contain colonies of light.

The title is inspired by Louise Gluck’s poem Daisies: “It is not modern enough, the sound the wind makes stirring a meadow of daisies: the mind cannot shine following it. And the mind wants to shine, plainly, as machines shine, and not grow deep, as, for example, roots.”

This piece was a response to Kadet Kuhne’s interactive audio installation “Abstracted Reflection” and the two works were installed as one for Physio/Logical August 4, 2012 at Million Fishes Gallery.
