"Hylozoic Soil is a visually arresting and complex installation. Quivering to life as viewers enter into its midst, this beguiling piece is made up of a network
of micro-controllers, proximity sensors and shape-memory alloy actuators. Hylozoic Soil offers layers of intriguing individual and group behaviours. Building upon simple motions embedded within individual elements, turbulent wave-like reactions are produced. Using its tendrils, fronts and bladders to lur visitors into its seemingly fragile web of laser-cut acrylic matrices, this work blurs the distinction between organism and environment."
