【Interactive Approach】

Human's living environment has been developing to a very complex level, where the virtual/online networking penetrates every crack of our physical reality - there is no ‘pure nature’ without communication technologies anymore. When things intertwine with each other, the dualism apparently becomes invalid to explain how the world works. Hence, the concept behind this project is to question how could technologies, nature and human desires co-exist well in the society? What kind of future we would like to build up to the next generation?


The exhibition visitors are welcome to adjust the proportion of each parameter: the sound signal will change the visual output based on different tempos/rhythms of the composition. The participant can freely chose which shape (e.g., sphere, cylinder, capsule) they like and how fast/slow the audio modulation would be to influence the moving rate of the visual rendition. By empowering participants to freely control the final output, this interactive installation aims to remind people of a potential harmony of co-existing in one global village.
