"Exercise Now and Fit a Standard Size Coffin is a series of works that deals with the body, using its size, appearance and action to suggest one’s relationship with a place and culture. In this iteration, four motion-controlled games were made to exaggerate and intensify everyday situations such as grocery shopping or navigating a crowded train. i used the medium of games because of its entertainment quality,specifically with the motion sensor, it also allows me to either surface or create bodily experience, in hope that such physical activation translates into social activation, reinforcing awareness through movements and repetition."
