Shih Chieh Huang TEDTalks

Shih Chieh Huang

Mar 2014

Huang speaks on his various forms of art and his goal of giving people an experience to explore. In his talk he shows a helmet that records the movement of the eye, and then uses the blinks to turn on and off a nightlight. He also shows a large bioluminescent sculpture made from bottles, tupperware and garbage bags that moves and acts like a giant, bioluminescent sea creature.

The objects are dissected and disassembled as needed and reconstructed into experimental primitive organisms that reside on the fringes of evolutionary transformation: computer cooling fans are repurposed for locomotion. Tupperware serves as a skeletal framework; guitar tuner rewired to detect sound; and automatic night lights become a sensory input.
