Artist Statement:


    Light Strings is an interactive immersive installation that consists of thousands of fiber optics and a computer mediated virtual agents system that responds to the participant’s movement (Ambient, Exploration, Play, Meditation modes). The fiber optic environment creates a floating 3D light surface that emits interactive lights. Participants and multimedia agents co-exist and meet in Light Strings through touching and using their whole bodies. Full freedom of physical body movement, creating relations to the physical installation and a virtual world is a critical condition of Light Strings.
