Cere Davis - Water Organ - Exploring Modes of Inefficient Physics

What would our technological and physical world look like if efficiency weren't a paramount consideration in the design of our mechanism and machinery? This talk will touch on design considerations in developing anthropomorphic sculptures and the necessary role inefficiency plays in emulating the motion and behavior of life-like electromagnetically-propelled anth ropomorphic sculptural "creatures".

Cere Davis is an engineer and artist who explores her passion for physics through the lens of moving sculpture. Her work is inspired by a desire to understand how forces of complexity and chaos conspire to create emergent patterns. Through re-imagining kinetic sculptural "lifeforms", moving from the subtle interplay of counter-balanced forces, she aims to deepen her understanding of emergent dynamics in the natural world. She is a science-art resident fellow at Manylabs and a MFA student in the Art-Science program at UC Santa Cruz. She produces, collaborates and participates in projects ranging from dance performance, art festivals, maker workshops and various scientific collaborations.

dorkbot: Warehouse of Wild, Weird, and Wonderful Projects   by David Pescovitz   Make Magazine Premiere Issue 2005

dorkbot-sf is a spinoff of dorkbot-nyc which is
"a monthly meeting of artists (sound/image/movement/whatever), designers, engineers, students and other interested parties from the new york area who are involved in the creation of electronic art (in the broadest sense of the term.)"

the purpose of dorkbot is to

  • give artists/programmers/engineers an opportunity for informal peer review
  • establish a forum for the presentation of new art works/technology/software/hardware
  • help establish relationships and foster collaboration between people with various backgrounds and interests
  • give us all a chance to see the cool things that our neighbors are working on
