I WANT TO’ is an installation controlled by live Twitter messages. An army of custom designed
wooden toys, a television screen and speakers comprise the work. Custom software extracts
Twitter messages which start with ‘I want to’. The expression ‘Want to’ becomes ‘Have to’, and
the newly-composed sentence is displayed on the television screen while also being sonified
through speakers. With each “I have to” phrase, the wooden toys respond by marching in unison.
This installation give the audience an opportunity to explore our hopes and desires as
unconscious internalizations of external expectations and social norms.
