A hybrid system is a dynamic system that exhibits both continuous and discrete dynamic behaviour - a system that can both flow and jump.
- Wikipedia

For The Kinetic Approach, I have taken this definition and applied it to a live media installation which generates one ink on Washi piece during each day of the exhibition.

The system transforms a mathematical construct in virtual space to an abstract rendering in real space through motion, ink, and Washi. The experience is one of observation and precision as the system continuously and meticulously generates the day's work over the span of several hours. This is the flow, the transformation of pixels to ink.

As each piece is finished, it is added to the installation, completing a matrix of twenty works by the closing of the exhibition. The experience is one of discovery and exactness as each day reveals a new pattern. This is the jump, the human intervention of plotter to wall.

The Kinetic Approach is at once static and dynamic, analog and digital, manual and automatic, determined and random, retro and modern.
