Ecstatic Epiphany is a human-scale window into an imaginary space.

This piece is for anyone in the gallery to watch and control. Walking past it, your movement is amplified into a shift in perspective. Sometimes this is a passive action, other times it can lead to a dramatic change as chaos unfolds in the generative algorithms. The choreography of this mathematical world forms a continuous cyclic narrative of creation, depression, agency, and rebirth. Each moment is unique, echoed but never repeated.

Biography

Micah Elizabeth Scott: Micah spent her childhood making the languages and worlds of technology her own, as an alternative to the isolation of suburban life and gender dysphoria. She followed this path to a career in the software industry, then a second career in art. Now she explores the boundaries between technology, society, and creative expression, using her unique perspective to try and help illuminate what makes us human.

Micah’s work focuses on applying new media techniques with a careful eye to the details of how the underlying technologies work. She often creates new technologies for a particular project, and she prefers not just using the technology to tell a story but making the technology itself and our relationship to it part of the story.

Her recent interests include interactive light sculpture, control loops, emergent behavior, unconventional human interfaces, therapeutic art, abstract impressionism, and making art accessible for everyone.
