Q + A w/ ARNOT for UNDERBELLY ARTS FESTIVAL 2015
What do you have planned for UA15 at Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour? TA: For UA15 I’m developing a project called Digital Forest. It’s a sculptural installation of over 300 ‘robotic’ plants which use Arduino microcontrollers, servo motors and light sensors to activate artificial plants. They respond to the audience’s presence in the room creating an interactive relationship between people and these electronic plants. Read More..

AGUILAR installation presented at NUIT BLANCHE 2014
Nuit Blanche, the Parisian annual dusk to dawn Arts Festival features Aguilar's new installation 'Picture Element (2014)'. Picture Element is a giant pixel. The word pixel is a contraction of "picture" and "element". This work is an extension of an element that constitutes our digital screens. Picture Element makes visible what we do not see and yet is before our eyes. The choice of the shape of the pixel is an adaptation of a true pixel (Samsung) choosen for Aguilar's form of stained glass. Supported by Galerie Hussenot
