This installation is based on "Modulobe" software for creating structures resembling living organisms in a virtual space.

Images of objects built with Modulobe are projected onto a screen in the exhibition space. The visitor can manipulate these structures via a large-scale interface installed in front of the screen, and sense through the dynamic experience of this process the "lifelikeness" of the Modulobe creations.

Modulobe software can be used to connect building block-like parts to create automobiles, animals, human figures or other bodies that move in various ways in a virtual space. Data of previously created objects can be accessed via a special website, and serve as basic models for building new ones.
Through this software and website, the user can experience new forms of creativity and sharing in the network age.
