Artist Teo Park's 'May The Force Be With You' is an interactive sculpture driven by visitors' gestures.

Teo Park, a freelance media artist based in Seoul, has created an interactive kinetic sculpture that is controlled by hand gestures. Titled ‘May The Force Be With You’, the installation uses visitors’ hand movements to determine how the water moves inside the tank.


Gravitational force is used, which is driven by the hand position of the person controlling it. Kinect hand gesture data is transferred to the motors that power the mechanical movement of the tank.

A real-time image is also projected into the space to show the changes of the water’s movement. This novel form of entertainment engages visitors to the installation, enabling them to create art which they can see changing in front of them. You can check out the kinetic sculpture in the video below:
