On View: Biomorphic Wall is the most recent of Chico MacMurtrie’s / Amorphic Robot Works’ site-specific Inflatable Architectures. This large-scale robotic installation is composed of 32 high tensile fabric tubes, which are controlled by a closed loop pneumatic system and suspended from the ceiling above the audience.
The installation is translating MacMurtrie’s ongoing research to develop a body of work exploring the forms, movements, and interactions that define our human experience.
