Nina Waisman’s works highlights the roles that gesture, rhythm, and miroring play in forming our thoughts. Scientists call such ‘physical thinking’ the preconscious scaffolding for human logic. How might our new tech-inflected gestures, then, be shaping our relationships with bodies and systems we connect to when we move with technology? Waisman creates an interactive sound installation in collaboration with 6th to 12th grade students at Albuquerque Academy.
