Artists’ Machines showcases artworks created during the 2015 fall semester through interdisciplinary collaboration between students from the departments of Art & Design, Engineering and Computer Science. Under the leadership of artist and educator, Ashley Pigford, Associate Professor of Graphic and Interaction Design, students were introduced to artist-constructed machines (i.e. micro-electronics, robotics, kinetic sculpture and interactive installation) as media for artistic expression. Representing the application of artistic and design processes across physical and digital media, the exhibited constructions—artist-machines—illuminate phenomena, invite interaction, and explore electronics and robotics as mechanisms of delightful curiosity.
