From my earliest memories, I was always into science and knew I wanted to be a doctor at a very early age. As a "science-whiz," getting through med school was relatively easy, but only later did I realize that the day to day practice of internal medicine involves many skills, but very little science. After five years of practice, I left medicine in order to stay home with our two young children, and continue feeding a nascent passion — connecting stuff that moves to the PC. Since 1991, I have pursued this passion full time, dividing my focus between using Motion Control technology in my studio to create artworks, and in the classroom to introduce students to the fundamentals of robotics. While most "roboticists" competitively chase the goal of creating human-like machines, I experiment in a far more humble arena: simple movements choreographed by computer program for aesthetic reason. Whether in the classroom or installing large kinetic sculptures in public spaces, I am committed to furthering the use of Motion Control as a new artistic medium.
