Combining Forces
Perspectives on working at the Intersections of Science, Art and Design

Mikhail Mansion is an American artist, engineer and educator living in Providence, Rhode Island. His work applies methods of computational design and fabrication to fashion media-based installations focused on exploring intersections between environmental systems and culture. End results typically manifest into kinetic installations or objects, as well as interactive screen-based works. A key component of his work is the creative composition of signal transmissions, comprised of both live and historic data culled from nature, and delivered by way of environmental sensors. These sensors inputs are routed into telepresent objects and spaces, from which signal origins blend with the material interventions of the artist, as well as with the observation of viewers, thus becoming attenuated, augmented or enhanced. Through these intersections and ecologies Mansion forms the basis of his creative practice.
