Czech artist Frederico Diaz (born 1971) uses contemporary computer technology to devise extraordinary works of kinetic art that respond to their audience. This volume documents an interactive installation composed of thousands of black spheres assembled by two robots. Optical sensors monitor the viewers--their movements and even the color of their clothing--to create a data stream that directs the robots.
