Listen to Korean artist U-Ram Choe discuss his intriguing kinetic sculptures, on show at the John Curtin Gallery in February 2012. Translated into English by Rachel Parks.

In his first solo exhibition in Australia, U-Ram Choe presents his extraordinary artwork, charting a path between art, science and cybernetic technologies. Finely engineered stainless steel, aluminium, and acrylic 'bones' provide the skeletal scaffolding for the 'brains and muscles' - CPUs and motors - which are assembled into captivating forms reminiscent of otherworldly flora and fauna. Taking his vision and art into a virtual realm he frequently identifies and categorises his sculptures with a fabricated narrative of species and habitat, inviting the audience to imagine the evolution of life forms into the future.

Holding slide: U-Ram Choe, Ultima Mudfox, 2002, metallic material, machinery, acrylic, electronic device (CPU board, sensor, motor, small light bulb), 65 x 150 x 55cm, installation view, John Curtin Gallery,2012
