    1. 1. Kerry JiaYi Lin Artificial Man Project Concept proposal © 2008 Artificial Man Interactive Installation DESC 9186 Digital Culture
    2. 2. Synopsis <ul><li>Interactive installation </li></ul><ul><li>Using the marionette combining with artificial organs to question the relationship between human and the machines (AI). </li></ul><ul><li>Participants will experience this situation as a puppeteer. </li></ul>Concept Today lot of the human’s natural organs can be replaced by the artificial organs.
    3. 3. Questioning If more than one natural organ has been replaced by the artificial organ , does this person become artificial man ? Will the person lose his/her Consciousness , Self and Mind as a normal human? Is the machines controlling human , or the human controlling the machines ? Their relationships become a kind of repeating life cycle .
    4. 4. Inspiration The i-Limb is first advanced prosthetic hand to have each individual finger powered by its own motor. It is facilitating multiple advanced grip patterns akin to a human hand. Every electronic circuit creates electromagnetic field (EMF). The heart pacemaker uses electrical impulses. The puppet show is an early interactive format . Combine tradition and digital Art together.
    5. 5. Fictive scenario <ul><li>Participants use Wii controllers to control the marionette. </li></ul><ul><li>The strings connect to marionette’s head, back, elbows, hands, knees, to the gears with the stepper motors . </li></ul><ul><li>Motors are connected to the micro-controller ( arduino ). </li></ul><ul><li>Micro-controller tells the motor to work, (speed & tuning direction) depends on the participant’s interaction on the Wii. </li></ul>
    6. 6. Fictive scenario The artificial organs are installing into the mannequin, like the artificial ear, artificial heart, heart pacemaker, artificial arm, hand and leg, also the artificial kidney. Not going to work on their real functions. Exaggerate -- Participants can hear the sound from the motor inside the artificial organs. Putting the zipper on the mannequin let participants directly interact with it, have a look the interior structure of the artificial organ.
    7. 7. <ul><li>Properties: </li></ul><ul><li>- Mannequin (high polymer silicon rubber) </li></ul><ul><li>- Stepper motors </li></ul><ul><li>- Wires </li></ul><ul><li>- Strings </li></ul><ul><li>Zippers </li></ul><ul><li>Hardware: </li></ul><ul><li>Arduino board </li></ul><ul><li>Wii control handles </li></ul><ul><li>Speakers </li></ul><ul><li>Software: </li></ul><ul><li>Arduino </li></ul>Technical scheme
    8. 8. Technical scheme Sound: Surrounding sound set up, use Dolby 5.1 system System: Stepper motors make the marionette to have vertical and horizontal movement . Wii control handles: Left and Right
