BABY LOVE is a mobile wifi installation that consists of 6 large size (170 cm diameter) teacups and 6 clone babies (70 cm tall). The teacup modeled after the spinning teacup of the old-time playground is made into an auto-mobile unit. The baby adorned with a locker key, a LED display with random locker numbers, is installed with a baby machine (a Mac mini with 802.11 wifi connection). The spinning wheel on the teacup is wired with sensors. The sensor data (direction and speed) sent via RS 232 and 802.11 to the baby commands the baby machine. The baby machine, its sound engine written in MaxMSP, receives and processes MP3 database. When riding the teacup, its direction maneuver and speed variation shuffle and rearrange the love songs in the baby engine. The teacup's bottom plate inflated with a silicon tube encloses a circular strip of contact bumper. When teacups are bumped into each other, the baby engine is informed, sound file are exchanged and remixed for web streaming.
