A drawing machine reacts to sound. Inspired by the function of a needle on a record, the marker vibrates, drawing the rhythms in circular paths on the paper that rotates underneath. Segal explores the tension between harmony and disharmony, between synchronicity and lack thereof. She does not aim for a precise recording of the sound. Instead, she invites disturbances into the work by altering the way the machine translates the audio. By adjusting the density and the sensitivity of the marker she adds her own interpretation to the drawing, filtering the sounds through her own consciousness.
