"This installation operates on unique batteries that generate electricity using my blood. The electric current produced by the batteries powers a small electronic algorithmic synth module. This module creates generative sound composition that plays via a small speaker. The blood used in the installation was stored up gradually over 18 months. The

"Motorgan is an electromagnetic/electromechanical organ based on 3 dc motors of different size. The speed of each motor is controlled by voltage changes via touch keyboard with 24 keys. Keyboard is split into 3 parts (registers) for each motor, so it's possible to play chords/polyphonic lines by taking one note from each register. Electromagnetic

"I’ve came up with the idea of this device during a long flight, when my iPod earbuds (the standard white ones) got caught up yet again. The wires of this manufacturer are covered with special rubber that grants the earbuds a unique feature: they do not fracture or bend; they just intertwine endlessly, which prolongs their lifespan and prevents contact

"Interactive installation, robot.

A wheeled remote-controlled robot roams around the horizontal black-striped canvas. These stripes are nothing else than audiocassette tapes. The robot is equipped with two tape heads to read off the magnetic tape. When the sound head crosses the tape or moves along it, it reads off the sound and forwards it over the
