Looking Outwards 11

A project that I find inspiring is the Ideogenetic Machine (2011) by Nova Jiang. The project is an installation that uses a custom software to combine the artist’s drawings with portraits of people interacting with the installation. The installation features a camera that captures images of the people and draws them into panels of the comic. I admire this installation because it elevates any person into the hero of a unique story. With this installation, anybody can be the protagonist of an epic tale.

Nova Jiang is an artist that creates sculptures and installations, many of which are interactive. She studied at UCLA to get her Master of Fine Arts in Media Art. She currently works in Los Angeles, but has exhibited her work throughout the world.
