Siren is an interactive installation piece that is set up for mischief, an animated display that is up to no good. Inspired by mythical characters that are wicked in nature, such as Hydra, Siren, Vampire and Sandman, the piece is designed to captivate and lure people towards it with its mysterious looking mechanical arms; one rubbing the rim of the wine glass to produce seductive musical tones, and another one pouring red wine into the wine glass. As someone comes closer, Siren splashes wine towards him/her, shocking the victim instantly, before returning to its previous actions, looking for its next prey.
