syngvaa

Spring 2011

Nicholas Knouf presents SYNGVAA, a responsive sculptural installation consisting of organic and machine parts that react to gallery visitors.  Working within the tradition of Fluxist assemblages, syngvaa encourages ephemeral, playful, participatory performances.  syngvaa's movements occur in response to non-speech vocal sounds by the participants, enabling people to explore other forms of vocal expression within a protective space.

syngvaa exists in the medium of robotic art and as such is a critique of traditional robotic forms.  Knouf has designed the shape of syngvaa to be non-anthropomorphic and non-zoomorphic in order to question simplistic transplanting of biological forms into hybrid computational objects.
