About the Artist
Initially constructed using the chassis of a discarded Gerald R. Ford animatronic from the Hall of Presidents, the Luke Smarto prototype was later upgraded with porcine valves. His 80 to 120 billion neurons emit an array of concepts within the cognitive sciences which he struggles to express. Although, through a series of advances to this model’s haptic technology, he has adapted and combined many devices including pencils, pens, and computing instruments. Equipped with actuators that can be either electric, pneumatic, hydraulic, piezoelectric or ultrasonic, Luke Smarto attempts to reveal artificial constructs utilizing ontological engineering and the electromagnetic spectrum. Ultimately, striving to achieve an interconnectivity between what is perceived and what is felt; a synthetic synthesizer.
