Geoffrey Drake-Brockman on Cyberkinetic Art
Date and Time
The Rotary Club of Mt Lawley invites you to join us to hear Geoffrey Drake-Brockman, a cybernetics artist specialising in large-scale public installations. His autonomous robotic and optical artworks interact with audiences to bring about dynamic human/machine performances based on mutual feedback.
Doors open at 6 pm and the meeting starts at 6.30 pm. Your ticket includes a two-course meal at the Mt Lawley Golf Club. This event is not only for Rotary members. We invite anyone interested in this topic to join us.
More on Geoffrey:
Geoffrey has exhibited in New York, London, Singapore, Aarhus, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Canberra. He has shown work at The National Gallery of Australia, The Morris Museum, The Singapore Art Museum, and The Perth Institute of Contemporary Art. His public commissions include the eleven-metre-tall robotic sculpture Totem at the Perth Arena, the cosmic ray-activated automaton Readwrite at the NEXTDC Data Centre, and the interactive light sculpture Surface at the Perth Children's Hospital.
"My background in Computer Science informs on ongoing project to create automata - interactive, self-determined, expressive machines - that test distinctions between person and artefact. I seek to create works that are able to support unique, emergent, ongoing, dialogues between viewer and art object."
