Where Is Your Art?

Kinetic sound installation, 2009

In this installation, machine and human power are cross-connected to produce a bizarre discourse on art. Manipulated dancing and singing plush toys are connected to Twitter’s search engine. Whenever a tweet contains the word ‘art’, one of the plush robots translates the tweet into speech and communicates it to the others. So the art-sensitive robots are sharing thoughts on art in real time.
