“The new power is action, the real power is that you can modify real-time actions in the real world.”

Since I entered Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2019, I have gone on to test this theory in visually compelling ways that combine my engineering background and artistic practice. This book examines the innovative projects that I bought about during my time as a student at Cranbrook, 2019-2021, while highlighting the ideas of Human-Computer Interaction that I have developed throughout my studies. I have realized that motion has terrific importance for me: I came to understand that movement is fundamental to every object. Human eyes are attracted by physical action, humans receive a huge amount of information from movement, and people are eager to see motion. I take motion not only as the foundation of constructing my work but also as an active material, its complex realistic disciplines determining the form of the artwork.
