Born from diagrammatic drawings, Huijun Lu's works explore the intersection between art, music, engineering and computing. In actualising the works, she treats materials as objects of utility and fascination. To enliven these materials, she builds circuits to create arrays of moving motors; twitching and gesturing through space, dispersing materials to create sound or reacting to human presence. Each movement or sound is devised by considering properties of music such as rhythm, rest, timbre and tone. Her works encompass kinetic installations and sculptures, moving image, soundscapes and performances.
