Amorphous Ball
(Augmented Reality kinetic sculpture, 2017)

We’ve come to expect that the device that we carry in our pocket will be all things at once. One by one, our other things are beginning to disappear as this pocket toy becomes the only toy that we play with. We’ve lost our cameras, camcorders, postcards, letters, notes, maps, tape recorders, flashlights, radios, stereos, watches, wallet photos, newspapers, calculators, answering machines, not to mention telephones. Like an amorphous ball, this shape-shifting device that we carry has also absorbed boredom, getting lost, physical contact, eye contact, talking, meeting, connecting, observing, remembering, asking advice, and discovering by chance.
