Superb Meaningless Invention Exhibition
Interactive work "Xbox" was created for the exhibition "Superb Meaningless Invention Exhibition" (Artists in Neighbourhood) in 2012.
X-box is a fortune-telling machine. A lucky number and some “Words of Wisdom” will be generated as a result of a series of mechanical motions inside the box triggered by a computer programme once the visitors approach the work. It aims to highlight the mystical process of how “luck” works in our daily life in a funny way. Although visitors will never know how these results are generated, the mechanical sounds produced during the process will provoke their thoughts about the relationships among the issues of “chance”, “events” and “objectives” etc.
