Denise Jiang-Looking Outwards 06

Ramdom #1
Nicholas Hanna

Nicholas Hanna is an artist and inventor who resides in Los Angeles. This piece of installation art called “Random #1” was created in 2014. All of the circles have a side that is black and the other white. They are joined to the structure frame by two pivot points. They are able to flip sides according to random algorithms.The motion of these circles flipping sides also make sounds according to the flipping rate. I think this piece is aesthetically satisfying that the circles are organized in a rational way but the movement is not. The randomness makes the whole piece interesting and the speed is just right to make noticeable changes without redundancy.
