The work is composed of Spirograph, Stirling engine and an Arduino, three inventions from different eras. Each visitor is invited to draw a pattern using the Spirograph, and place it in a special holder that spins it with a Stirling engine. This engine provides electrical power for the Arduino, allowing it to blink so that the Spirograph pattern will be animated differently at various rates.
As an artist, I am enthusiastic about applying fresh approaches to my art, especially ones involving science and technology. My work is often a result of my observation and the learning of the imitation of the nature. The role of technology is essential to increase efficiency and convenience. In the art world, I attempt to enhance storytelling and amplify expressions through tech/science-based solutions and find it more competent than that of the conventional.
