Based on the old principle of communication over long distances using light reflection: 100 plastic hands revolve around their own axis each by a small computer-controlled motor. The small mirrors held by the prosthetic hands, reflect the light of a spotlight into the room and onto the wall. The spots of light follow a computationally designed choreography, moving on the wall opposite in ever different formations to repeatedly form the Chinese character for mobility.
This video was taken during the construction works. 'Mobility' will be on view at the Ars Electronica Center (Linz, Austria) from March, 11th 2011.
