ThinkTank - Art Institute of Chicago 2002
In this project, a precursor to Lifeblood, I used a row of eight air tubes placed in the bottom of the water tank to write out alphanumeric symbols one at a time. The video shows a small segment of a long, poetic statement. ThinkTank is pictured here writing "AM I MAKING MYSELIF CLEAR." This image was taken at the 1926 Gallery, where it was installed in the front window of the space. A computer program written in Max/MSP controls how the bubbles are released. There they are caught in the middle of writing the letter A.
