피보나치수열에 영감을 받아 제작된 인터랙티브 설치작품, 비늘(Scales, 2014)이 광주국립과학관에 초대되어 열쇠-수학체험전에서 전시를 하게 되었습니다.  본 작품은 244개의 목재종이를 접어 만든 설치물로써 입김을 불어 넣으면 살짝 열렸다 닫히는 설치물입니다.  광주국립과학관은 꽤 멋진 공간이며 다양한 상설전시가 있어서 아이들을 데리고 가기에 매우 유익한 장소인 것 같습니다.

How long does a moment appear to you?  ‘A Moment’ is a kinetic display using a POV(Persistence of Vision) display and it swings like a pendulum while displaying an ephemeral message.
