Sensory Cocoon is an interactive light fixture that requires the presence of a person for it to 'come alive.' At three and a half feet tall and three feet wide, this hanging piece invites one to come into contact with its curvy surface by holding it from its 'waist' and to engage with its 'brain' by peeking into it through its oblong 'mouth;' it is certainly 'hungry' for interaction. The piece connects to the human body because it is itself analogous to it. As such, it explores the relationship between space, technology, and the human senses by enveloping the human head into a 'cocoon,' an internal environment whose sole purpose is to stimulate the body in a controlled fashion through a network of electronic components. It also represents a continued interest in an anthropometric scale and in sensory environments.
