Design Director: Power Tian


Recreate a scene of the creative process using the idea of Goldberg Machine. Machines, electronics and animations are used and mixed together to co-write a beautiful song about the art of creation. From the first stage MISSION to THINK to MAKE and eventually to the final stage WOW, the whole process is smooth and full of surprises like an exquisite music; precise and complex like a delicate instrument. The whole process is happening among screens, projectors, machines and other different media, switching freely between the real and the virtual, ultimately presents a result that polished by a series of cross-media. The multimedia installation islike a complex set of variations which composed by four movements, logical but passionate, bigoted but flexible, calm but intense.The audience plays two roles throughout the work – the trigger and the receiver.
