Artist Statement: Patterns and rhythms of gravity are explored by extending the intuitive quality of gravity into a digital realization. Five display columns independently show a gravity simulation with varying flow of acceleration, deceleration, and bounce efficiency, yielding complex and meditative patterns. Each column consists of three networked microprocessors driving 192 light-emitting diodes.
