Three Philosophers

by Leo Kang & Steve Jackson (2020)
*working in progress

‘Three Philosophers’ is an interactive installation consisting of three life-sized wooden sculptures that produce different audio-visual effects. Each sculpture has its own Arduino-based interface that enables it to respond to the user’s behaviors (cranking, making proximate sound, touching the string). Diverse technological materials and ready-made media such as computer fans, broken vinyl, disco-ball and motors are attached to the sculptures, and these attached components move and light up by interacting with the user’s behaviors.
