The Library of Decoupled Motion is a systems artwork that uses a genetic algorithm based on D’arcy Thompson’s On Growth & Form
to drive the creation of a series of digitally fabricated objects. The text fragments that make up the algorithm are then read by the artist into the objects and their motion is is controlled by the EEG signals generated at this time. A number of “health” indicators are fed back into the system and drive the design of the next generation. This work explores the idea of abstract neuroprosthetics, zeroing in on the poetics in human-machine-interfaces.
