Michael Rees: Social Object: Sculpture and Software. Social Object: Sculpture and Software is an interactive software installation that includes correlated physical objects with virtual objects. Interacting with this artist produced software, creates screen based experiences that construct virtual objects from which physical objects can be
derived. The work explores the relationship between language and form while producing a framework for virtual and physical play.
The exhibition presents Rees’s Sculptural User Interface (SUI) application, along with objects made from the SUI using contemporary automated sculpting processes. The SUI is
a language to form synthesizer, a concrete poetry machine. The software generates 3D forms by typing letters on the keyboard. These letters, words, sentences, turn into various kinds of shapes that can be combined in numerous ways creating a inspiring experience.
