Water Lights Painting, Interactive and lighting installation, 2006
Exhibition, Gallery X, 280 S. Columbus Drive, Chicago, USA, 2006

Water Lights painting is an interactive installation that encourages the viewer to paint with water on its surface. These gestures create changing patterns and images by
illuminating LEDs whose brightness is controlled by sensors in the painting's surface. The public contribute to this piece by painting with the wet brush or modifying the image by drying portions of it with the towel. This work was created using the following: Light-emitting diodes (LEDs, 300 pieces), microcontrollers, transistors, and a pyroelectric infrared detector. Although people usually turn on lights with a switch or a motion sensor, in this installation, lights are turned on by water, which gives viewers a new experience.

Telematic Drum Circle
is an interdisciplinary art project which combines Tele-Robotics, Computer Science, Pneumatics and Music. The project explores the rupture of deeper communication in the technology meditated world, and addresses the issue of global harmony by sharing participants’ rhythmical spirit produced through the telematic live drum ensemble. It consists of two main components: a set of sixteen robotic drums arranged in an installation space and an interactive website networked with these drums. Each drum is representative of a geo-cultural region. Regardless of age, sex, religion, race, and culture, we all have a universal rhythm which is a heart beat. The drum is an instrument of rhythm, and I believe it can stand in for a person’s heart. The heart to heart communication expressed on drums cuts through all the differences, and blurs the boundaries. By tapping the computer keyboard while at the website, participants around the world can remotely play the robotic instruments together, while watching a live streaming video of their ensemble broadcast through the website.
