Orchestrating human control and the inherent natural order within liquids, this project challenges the concept of human ownership and our being in the world.

In the material world, there are innumerable natural orders that structure the environment and the world in which we live. The interpretation of these orders does not belong to a specific species or time, but is like an eternal existence hidden in every corner. Microstructural Machine is based on the experimental model of the Bubble Raft proposed by Nobel Laureate William Lawrence Bragg in 1947, and is an extension of this model to construct a real-time dynamic microstructural machine.

This drawing machine uses the properties of crystalline structures as the drawing unit, and the dynamic staggered arrangement of controlled crystalline structures to create a miniature landscape, attempting to strike a balance between the properties of natural materials and human control, and exploring the hidden orders of nature.
