Memory of Form and Matter

Chris Sugrue

I think this piece was really fascinating to me because it is a physical sculpture that doesn’t actually change its form. Even though it technically static, it feels completely dynamic. It is created through a series of parametric, algorithmically generated forms and is put together in a way that is viewed differently from every angle.

I think this hybrid between digital and physical, and data-driven art is really quite interesting. This is what Chris Sugrue does, she is an artist and programmer who creates these novel interactions, these experimental interfaces. She studied Art and Technology at Parsons, New York and has since done multiple residencies, from Barcelona to New York. She was instrumental in creating EyeTracker, for ALS patients that went on to win multiple design and innovation awards.

She currently teaches at Parsons Paris.
