Vitality (Sturgeon), 2015


Motion Interactive Sculpture




In “Vitality", several LEDs are embedded in the lamps, and lights are emitted from the optical fibers, and they are enabled to flip on and off when people touch the fur tails. However, the primary design goal is to provide explorative and tactile engagements with digital entities to open playful spirits. To amplify people's senses and manifest lively feelings of interacting with the “Vitality", I borrowed my synesthetic experiences inspired by strong life energy and impressive movements. In particular,I combined two inspirations: the flapping pattern of bird wings and the jerking motion of the sturgeon when I hold the fish.
