Tristan Perich: “Machine Wall Drawing”

March 20, 2014 - November 18, 2014
Patsy Dudley Pate Balcony

Tristan Perich is a contemporary artist and composer based in New York City who recently had work included in the exhibition “Soundings” at the Museum of Modern Art. WIRE Magazine describes his musical compositions as “an austere meeting of electronic and organic.” “Machine Drawing” occupies a 60-foot wall on the museum’s Patsy Dudley Pate Balcony and has been creating itself over the course of its 6-month installation. Perich writes code that operates the machine, but the interaction of the digital and physical elements make the work unique, introducing randomness into a tightly controlled order. “Machine Drawing” went on view in conjunction with Slingshot Festival of music, electronic art and technology, held in Athens March 19–22, 2014.
