      Superstition, Media art, New media technology, Interactive installations



            “Supersti+Tech” is a compound word of “Superstition” and “Technology”. The purpose of this project is to reinterpret superstition with new media devices through which juxtaposes and combines various paradoxical concepts such as irrational versus rational, fiction versus fact, and virtual versus real. The outcome of this project displays three interactive installations which use computer processing and mechanical engineering: A Fortune-Telling Bird, A Lucky Charm Drawing Robot, and Plastic Divination . In 2014, A Fortune-Telling Bird was exhibited at Live Herring ‘14 in Jyväskylä, Finland and A Lucky Charm Drawing Robot was exhibited in Helsinki, Finland. The production of Plastic Divination is in progress
