David Bowen | kinetic, robotic and interactive sculptural works

David Bowen is an artist that does lots of sculptural works utilizing sensors and data driven ideas. As a disclaimer… many of his ideas are… out there. And many of them seem a little ridiculous as no seemingly useful application can be remotely found in any way. However, I think that is a testament of the language and ideas and how young this whole movement really still is. We are at a point in time where more experimentation and ideas are able to become a reality with computers and sensors becoming more affordable. This gives artists a chance to really explore many ideas they may have. For example…
