connections

Connecting tracks, contact pads, and conductive pathways allow electrons to move a near-light speeds. Like electronic neurotransmitters, they transfer valuable information from one neural location to another, and keep several components in touch so that their function can be performed.

 

Basic constituents of communication networks, sometimes simple and sometimes complex, these integrated elements fit surprisingly well in the physical dimensions of the supporting board.

The optimization of space is precisely what generates these suggestive geometries: straight and broken lines, sometimes ending at a connection point with another pathway. Their sober chromatic range is extremely expressive.


Faces and eyes sculpted by a robot, a portrait of science. Tracks and contacts wriggling through tiny spaces, rising, gyrating, and ducking like elegant sculptures.

Machines, with their robotic arms, perform the precision work required to design and print the endless connection networks of most electronic devices.

 

The artificial microlandscapes resulting from human design and robotic manufacture display traces of their mixed parentage.
