The unexpected marriage of nature and technology is a central style to U-Ram Choes kinetic sculptures. Large-scale metal and plastic pieces mirror what appear to be biological life forms, as they breathe, open and close and give out light, yet every part of it is machine-created. His appropriation of new media enforces a dialogue that questions how the future of the worlds species can co-exist with the modern world, characterizing them as almost alien beings. His invention of a new type of organism is supported by constructed Latin titles for his pieces and a story for how they are positioned in society.
