It is about the real and the virtual. These two worlds are not separate. In one way or another, they are interrelated and mixed. I appropriated Marcel Duchamp to talk about how our physical experiences are already mixed with virtual ones. He was the one who said that many ready-made objects could be art in themselves. He said, "I enjoyed watching the wheels spin, just as I enjoy looking at the flames dancing in the fireplace.” I inherited his ideas. Virtual worlds are what we design to augment our experiences. In front of my work, the viewers can spin a virtual bicycle wheel with their hands. The Kinect sensor recognizes up to six people and calculates the movements of their hands in real-time. The faster you move your hand, the faster the wheel spins. So, the physical and virtual worlds are connected.
