SILKE is a robotic chandelier, trying to simulate behaviors from living creatures.
She follows the movement of visitors and reacts according to their actions. If the viewer stays calm only single arms will move and follow movement, but if persons are more boisterous more arms will follow. After time, the light calms down, but remembers if someone scared her and reacts nervously to further actions.
SILKE is an experiment and this bahvior is constantly being changed and developed. Only one question always remains: How much control are we willing to give away to our computerized environment in daily live.
