Abstract

"Astral Body" is an art installation for viewers to reveal the origin of life by showing the sense of life. A dead body and an artificial sign of life with dead matter are presented so that the viewers could think of relationship of the two. Astral Body has a kinetic surface made with ferromagnetic powder to present creature-like movements and human interaction. We have expressed the movements by using an automatic running robot with a magnet. Through the exhibitions, we have collected reactions and opinions from the attendees, and observed them. In this paper, we will conclude the overview, concept, design, implementation, and outcomes from the exhibitions.
