This five-minute talk will briefly describe four artworks exhibited over a 37-year period inspired by traditions of abstraction in art coupled with principles of color theory, perception, psychology and cognition, neuro-science, physics and optics.

“1443” is both the title of an exhibit in 1979 at the Alternate Space Gallery on West Broadway and it is the focal length of ellipsoidal spots lights (Lekos) used in the installation. The room sized installation featured abstract forms of spandex with constantly evolving lighting.

“Labyrinthos” – a large-scale computer controlled (an Ohio Scientific C2 4P with 58K) ‘stochastic’ maze of locking doors was exhibited at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT in 1982. This installation was a Panopticon (J. Bentham) that had surveillance cameras and monitors allowing participants to view their progress and past through an irrational randomized structure of locking and unlocking doors.

Inspired by Alan Turing’s paper in the 1950 issue of the Journal Mind, “The Automatic Confession: A Catholic Turing Test” was first exhibited at the Space Gallery in Boston in 1993 and was later exhibited at the Landesmuseum in Linz, Austria as part of Ars Electronica; twice at the ACM-SIGGRAPH Art Show and at the Victoria & Albert Museum on an iPad.

The Split Brain Human Computer Interface was part of Sleuthing the Mind curated by Ellen Levy at Pratt Manhattan Gallery in 2014. The viewer uses a handheld stereoscope to watch the 1991 Senate Judiciary Hearings on the Nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. The stereoscope delivers the video testimony of Anita Hill only to the viewer’s left hemisphere while the right hemisphere only sees the video testimony of Clarence Thomas rebutting the accusations of harassment. This “he said, she said” spectacle seen by a ‘split-brain’ induces artificial cognitive dissonance requiring single minded determination to figure out who is lying.
