The Long Reliever
Installed at the 2015 UCLA Game Arts festival @ the Hammer Museum
Kinetic / electronic sculpture featuring popular motion sensing game remote, motor, car
lock actuator, microcontroller, popular game platform, infrared sensor bar, monitor.
Long Reliever automatizes the motions necessary to play Wii Sports by capitalizing on the limited motion sensing capabilities of the Wii-mote. By continuously activating the "pitch / swing" gesture and repeatedly pressing the A button, the sculpture plays game after game of endless 1-player baseball. This game could go on forever.
Technical Knockout (2016) is a similar project that automatizes the motions necessary to play Wii Boxing. It was installed at ThreeFourThreeFour in Brooklyn, NY as part of the solo show Play Dead.
