Grant Gregson Roadcase
This residency aims to further a research in communication in order to develop a visual and sculptural communication interface – Roadcase, a bronze sculptural “animatron” -, installed in a transportable crate that can be placed in various environments, urban or remote, in situ. Roadcase is conceived as a miniature, automated street performance that occurs in an aluminum travel crate, translating the viewer’s physical and virtual movements through electronic networks and devices that cause changes in the sculpture’s kinetic motion. Research at OBORO will examine the use of the TINI web server, interface and network development.
