I merge artificial materials, air, water and electronics to create experimental organic living environments. I disassemble everyday electronic appliances, devices and reassemble selected parts with dissected household plastic materials. The result of these combinations form a kinetic cause and effect system that interacts with the viewer. One of my interest is the involvement between the viewer and their environment. I use electronics such as motion sensors, infra red sensors, remote controls, Basic Stamp2 computer chip, and rewired music tuner to establish interactions between the viewer and their environment. Viewer's physical movement, gestures, and their participation using the remote controls, and sounds can alter their surroundings with changes such as blowing wind, inflating plastic tubes, and a flow of plastic glowing liquid.
