A Thoth Work is a multimedia sculpture installation with electro mechanical wooden sticks moving in the room, and continually draws figures and forms.
The sticks are controlled by a complex web of media and technologies, such as robotics, multichannel audio, lights, and video projections, that all affect each other, and make the sticks take on new positions and constellations.
A Thoth Work is exhibited both as a sculpture installation and multimedial performance. The concept behind the piece revolves around the idea of the sticks being artificial life forms that evolves its own visual and choreographic language.
