An interactive art exhibit featuring sonic sculptures, kinetic assemblages and mechanized drawings created by Sherman Finch, assistant professor of visualization at Texas A&M University, is on display through Saturday, March 10, at Art League Houston.
The show, “Perceptual Perpetual,” relies on audience participation to activate the visual system, creating variations in how the conceptual work is experienced.
“It’s kind of a physics machine,” Finch said. “Similar to the anatomy of a pachinko game or children’s handheld spinner toy, where gravity, kinetics and a variety of other forces cause surfaces to spin and set objects in motion. Each piece offers a unique interactive framework that creates random fluctuations in movement and audio mechanics. As the work is activated, a conversation emerges between visual aesthetics and embodied interaction.”
The result is a playful art experience celebrating creativity and human ingenuity.
