Health narratives from artists living in the South End neighborhood of Boston become content for building an interactive sculptural installation. The complex relationships between body, health, self, and community are examined from a combined anthropological and artistic perspective.
This project pivots around the general assumption that a series of seemingly small changes can, over time, have a significant impact on the lives of individuals.
This interdisciplinary team has worked to discern what small events (tipping points) in the lives of artists have changed their understanding of self, health and body. From this research an interactive robotic sculpture was designed to respond to these individual narratives.
DVD includes a documentary tracking the process and progress of the work, artist drawings, and documentation of the finished piece.
