switchArray is a kinetic wall sculpture constructed out of 5 rows and 5 columns of limit switches and servos. The arm of each servo taps the switches across the sculpture in patterned intervals, creating a sea of clicking sounds. Rather than being long-winded and tedious by attempting to control each click manually, generative techniques help to choreograph infinite arrangements of clicks. As a result, patterns are continuously generated loop after loop, as the switches click after successive clicks.
