Garth Zeglin: Miscellaneous Art Projects

My art web has moved...

My main art web has moved to, including documentation on my kinetic fabric sculpture, performance art, talking mirrors, and motion-sensitive costumes. This page has information on older work and side projects.


I started out my art experience by consulting with artists on various projects, including both technical consultation and serving on two MFA committees. My role as co-founder of Rossum's still sometimes includes informal technical consultation.

Robot War Posters

In 2005 I designed a series of satirical posters to underscore the ever-increasing militarization of robotics, intended to provoke thought in the robotics research community.

McBlare: A Robotic Bagpipe Player

I contributed the electronics to the McBlare project, a collaboration with Ben Brown, Roger Dannenberg, Carl DiSalvo, and others to make a machine to play bagpipes. It premiered at the Robotics Institute 25th Anniversary event in 2004 and has made many appearances since.

LED Sculptures

I have worked on a few static sculptures built out of LEDs in addition to all the motion-controlled wearable lighting. One collaborative one showed informally at the second meeting of the "Seminar" salon.


An ongoing project that started in the summer of 2004. An early set of clips showed informally at the first "Seminar" salon.

Watercourse Way

This was a collaboration during the Summer of 2003 with Roger Dannenberg, Barbara Bernstein, Tom Neuendorffer, and the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble.

Alma de Rana

In September 2000 I was an invited participant in the "Alma de Rana" art festival in Santomera, Spain. I had my first taste of performance art in a collaboration with artist Diego Diaz to create the "Institute for the Study of Biological Enigmas," a fictional crypto-zoological science institute.

We succeeding in attracting the attention of the local press. I also have a few photos incidental to the project.
