David Bowen (US, 1975) is a studio artist and educator who creates kinetic, robotic and interactive sculptural works. Bowen’s work is concerned with aesthetics that result from reactive and generative processes as they relate to the intersections between natural and mechanical systems.

Tele-present Water in 'Big bang Data'
Fundacion Telefonica, Madrid (ES)
until 24 May 2015
This installation by David Bowen draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. The wave intensity and frequency collected from a buoy is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure, resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant unknown location. This work physically replicates a remote experience and makes observation of the activity of an isolated object, otherwise lost at sea, possible through direct communication.

46°41'58.365" lat. -91°59'49.0128" long. @ 30m by David Bowen refers to the source location where the water surface data was collected for this series. An autonomous aerial vehicle hovering 30 meters above the surface of Lake Superior scanned the water. For this series of five, the vehicle was deployed to the same location on different days and in different weather conditions. The collected data was used to carve a series of cylindrical three-dimensional models in clear acrylic with a CNC router. This process captured the dynamic movements of the waves and ripples from a specific time and location and suspended this ever-changing water pattern into a static transparent form.

From January through March 2015, 46°41'58 365" lat -91°59'49 0128" long @ 30m was included in BEYOND THE BUZZ: New Forms, Realities and Environments in Digital Fabrication a group exhibition in the Main Gallery, Minneapolis College of Art and Design - Minneapolis (US)
