FIELD GENERATOR (2016)

Haye Heerten conjures an immaterial volume between two hexagon-shaped electronic instruments. You can see and hear a succession of impulses flowing in a continous feedback loop. The existence of the field is directly influenced by subtle movements of the instruments.

Present-day technology enables us to dream up and construct virtual realities and immaterial entities. We use feedback loops as a core principle when we try to approximate natural processes with technological means, nevertheless it's difficult to develop an intuitive understanding for them. This project investigates very direct haptic manipulation of otherwise untouchable dynamics.
