Summer Exercise is an installation of 3 new electronic sculptures by CW&T that explore time and computing. Thermochromic Clock is a 4-digit 7-segment timepiece. Each segment in the display is made with a length of nichrome wire and then covered by a thick gloss of black thermochromic paint. Time is displayed by applying voltage to the nichrome wire. As the wire sustains an electric current it heats up the surrounding ink, causing it to become transparent.
1Bit 1Hz CPU is a diagrammatic wall sculpture of a very simple, slow computer. By flicking a regular light switch, a single bit is processed at rate of one cycle per second to turn on and off a light.
2 voices counting to a billion is 2 stainless steel devices that let Che-Wei and Taylor simultaneously count to a billion. The devices house the same electronics, the same length voice recordings and are started at exactly the same instant. Over time, their voices will drift apart exaggerating the otherwise imperceptible differences in the electronics.
CW&T, stands for Che-Wei Wang and Taylor Levy: “At CW&T, we create multidisciplinary work in collaborative environments where we leverage technology and computing. With the latest tools and processes, we imagine near future possibilities and build them into reality”
