Description"Common Datum" is an environmentally reactive, hygroscopic sculpture. A series of suspended vessels continuously absorb the humidity in the exhibition — generated through the breath of the audience. Slowly, each 3D-printed condenser accumulates water that drips into a series of glass volumes. Even though all vessels are of individual shapes, locally absorbing moisture at a different rate, a common datum is created throughout all of them. The work articulates a confluence between traditional and digital craft in the context of environmental, participatory art.
