 CONCEPT 

Wind blown from a blower unit fixed to the tip of a robot arm makes a piece of fabric flutter. Surrounding the robot arm, laser modules placed on the ground irradiate surfaces that illuminate the fabric's surface with organic and dynamic lines.

The way the robot arm moves the fabric is as if the arm, encountering an unknown entity, touches the fabric as though it is observing its presence or as if it is trying to understand whether it itself has a physical existence, breathing onto the fabric.

While the robot arm moves the fabric in an inorganic (artificial) and reproducible manner, the fabric moves in an organic and irreproducible way.

The fabric, treated digitally through technology, demonstrates the nature of physical and digital interference. Moreover, it could also be considered a harmony between different properties.
