Unit 2

Current Practice
My work began with an intention to involve people with nature through a technological device, and over the course of the masters the work took on board influences from psychology, mechanics, woodworking, hydraulics, and physical computing. The largest goal of the project is to challenge the status-quo acceptance that technology and nature are opposed, and the Earth Antenna approaches this through traditional woodworking techniques and sensual organic materials.

Future Practice
Aside from making the machine functional, the future of this project lies in advancing the programmed parts and increasing the amount of direct interaction that it has with the audience. Entertainment is crucial in engaging a broad spread of people and currently the EA is quite isolated.
