Mio I-zawa (飯沢 未央)

Japanese artist Mio I-zawa (飯沢 未央) is interested in technology and human. She designed The Grow Cable and an installation called Heart(L).

The Grow Cable is an i-phone cable shaped like an umbilical cord. It moves while charging the phone. According to I-zawa, she designed the cable as an umbilical cord as she has related the action of charging a phone to way mother feeds energy to her baby. “It moves as if it’s trying to introduce iPhone into, just like to express an irony to people’s dependance on iPhone.”, says I-zawa.

Heart(L) is a huge heart shaped installation connected a heart rate sensor. According to I-zawa, When you put your finger on the heart rate sensor, the sensor reads your heart rate, a compressor will runs and the installation will beat accordingly. By or hugging or touching the installation, people can almost see and feel their own hearts and the one of others.



Arduino technology has limitless possibilities. It provides interaction between objects and human in a way that it would otherwise not possible to achieve.
