Kick Babies

Form: Interactive Installation


Date: Mar 2016


We can see news of incidences of violence almost everyday. Violence is one of the defects of human nature; it was a problem in the past, it is a problem nowadays and it will always be a problem in this world. Instead of bemoaning or blaming the abusers, I would rather discover the facts of violence themselves. Since I have been always interested in human nature including its defects, I enjoy studying, exploring and discussing those topics with my audience through their reactions to my works. Kick Babies is an installation piece. There is a set of life-size plastic baby dolls on the floor, and the audience is allowed to do whatever they would like, but they are encouraged to kick or step on the dolls. This piece makes the audience experience the relation between violence, psychological hints, and instructions.
