A.I. – ALGORITHMIC INTERACTIONS by Del Jackson, Iowa
Jackson blends his training in art and civil engineering to create work that ranges from computer numeric control fabrications to kinetic sculptures that evolve and change in response to the viewer.
A.I – Algorithmic Interactions received 3rd Prize at the Fall In... Art and Sol festival that highlighted solar art sculptures throughout the region. In this outdoor installation, individual flower-like sculptures responded to the presence of sunlight and visitors.
Solar artwork harnesses the power of sun in an innovative, expressive way. By integrating alternative energy technologies that collect solor energy and use the power of light, sound or moving parts, solar artwork demonstrates a new level of creativity.
