My paper documents the evolution of my own creative research, which I have entitled Electrosculpture. Prior to 1972, when I concocted the word Electrosculpture, people had referred to my work as being kinetic or cybernetic. Although my work shares a common technology with these genres, the underlying intention of Electrosculpture, is its stimulus interface with the spectator, for without physical involvement the full potential of these works can not be realized. The sensing systems and responses upon which this work is founded are best accomplished through the use of electronics, which translates input stimulus into output audio/visual response. Electrosculpture is a fusion of these constituents.
