The pattern streaks of light pulse through each bar simulating interconnected data between machines. The loop of light programming appears endless,

I understand the potentiality of the viewer in an art gallery context to not go up and touch things. I work within the constraints of my modular system however, each installation responds to the architecture and my analysis of human interaction in the space.
