Cycles – Arc One

Installation, 2010

Cycles is an interactive work that tries to establish an intimate relationship between the visitor's physical body and an artificial living system. Inspired by concepts of identity based on both traditional Buddhist philosophy and modern artificial life research, it explores notions of transience and boundary in human identity and confronts the visitor with those currently shifting ideas.
