This hypothetical device informs your quantum state within innumerable versions of our universe in the quantum state of the universe. The main idea is inspired by an equation, the measurement of existence from the relative quantum mechanics created by physicist, Everett who invented Many-World theory.

Quantum state of the universe:
| Ψ UNIVERSE 〉 = ∑αi | Ψ WORLD i 〉
Measurement of the existence:

The theory explains that there are many worlds existing in parallel in the Universe. Although all worlds are of the same physical size (this might not be true if we take quantum gravity into account), and in every world sentient beings feel as "real" as in any other world, in some sense some worlds are larger than others. I describe this property as the measure of existence of a world. "I" also have a measure of existence. It is the sum of measures of existence of all different worlds in which I exist; equally, it can be defined as the measure of existence of my perception world. Note that I do not experience directly the measure of my existence. In the system of the parallel universe, I feel the same weight, see the same brightness, etc. irrespectively of how tiny my measure of existence might be.

The measurement of Existence is an interactive installation that incorporates both an animated graphic and sound. The device shows the simultaneity of innumerable state of a single electron forms the probability wave. As a viewer get closer and observe the ambiguous state of the electron, the device is triggered to show the next stage of the visual information of the viewer’s existence within the system of the parallel universe. In the theories of quantum physics, the acts of observation and measurement play a critical role in creating our physical reality. When it is activated by the power of observation, it examines the sensory mechanism of measurement from the viewer, such as cognition and sight. Then, it visualizes a parallel state of the viewer’s universe, from clustered groups of galaxy to the solar system the earth inhabits.

Tens of thousands of people are conceived every year using donated sperm. A single sperm donor can anonymously father multiple children, so there's a risk of ‘accidental incest’, where sexual relationships develop between half-siblings who are unaware they’re related. My work explores the role that genetic technology will play in romantic relationships in the near future - for example in the avoidance of accidental incest. I aim to examine how new biotechnologies, and the companies that develop them, might lead to new types of relationships between friends, families and lovers.

'Accidental Incest' show and question the scenario which focus the case of a world where many more people are born using sperm or egg donors and accidental incest in the near future. What if the technology allows us to eliminate danger that a resulting baby could get genetic disease, sibling marriage becomes acceptable in social and cultural context? or not?

The portable devices are designed to capture and analyse the genetic contents of both sexes and allow transfer of their respective DNA sequences into the main device. Through genetic engineering, the main device re-programs both the man and women's gene to become free of a genetic disease. As soon as the main device receives their genetic information, bio-chemical sampling assays using nanotechnology allows creation of the new gene by spreading their body cells and letting them grow on the surface of a gold pendant.

After two weeks of cleansing, the gold pendant containing the new gene may be applied to pregnant women in the form of bio-patch delivery system. The new gene then is permeated slowly into the baby via this delivery system.

The mechanism that this sentence reaches your retina falls on at least one of the following scenarios. It’s the light reflected by the ink molecules that were absorbed through the capillary fibers of the pulp of the paper that you’re holding. Or it is the visible light which was originally a beam of electrons that was bent and fluoresced by electromagnetic forces. Or it is sum of lights that just passed through the barriers of liquid crystal molecules.

Or it may have come from tiny little light bulbs that illuminates through plasma discharges. One certain fact is that you don’t imagine any of these situations described above when you read a sentence like this one. But that is until you stand in front of the piece “R”.
Like inspecting internal structure of a clock through a magnifying glass, like appreciating delicate micro symphony of tiny little gears and windup springs, when you’re in front of “R”, you’ll find yourself experiencing the elaborate procedures that humankind have invented to make a soulless machine draw a picture for itself.

“R” is a giant wooden kinetic sculpture made of thousands of hand-carved components. It constructs an image with thousands of black and white ping pong balls in respect for humankind’s endless efforts from Altamira cave’s drawings to splendid images on light emitting diode matrix displays.

It is a shelter from the furious competition of high-tech inventions trying to create revolutionary devices worldwide. It makes you turn around and have a time to look back and reminisce about the meaning of creating devices that create images.

The piece works in two modes. In passive mode it constructs ready-made images by stacking up black and white ping pong balls in predefined orders. In interactive mode, the piece detects human activity nearby itself and drops ping pong accordingly. As time goes by, like bones of dinosaurs in stratum, spread dots of black ping pong balls accumulates leaving traces of visitors that passed by.
