Where do the differences between machine and biology begin to blur? O-Cell is a playful exploration into building an organic machine that operates according to the laws of trigonometry but moves as if powered by an elegant and idiosyncratic force.

As a programmable kinetic image, the movement and composition is defined by altering the position of the circles in the dark gray area. Each circle is an oscillator corresponding to one of the visual elements on the left. When two gray circles touch, each corresponding oscillator begins to generate energy for moving the image.
