Elfs: electronic life forms
'Elfs' are small mechanical systems powered by solar energy that behave as natural living systems in many aspects. The immediate compassion for these life forms is an amazing experience, even though their abilities are very limited... The light-sensitive 'elfs' desperately use their chaotic sounds and noisy movements to call the attention of the outside world.
The sound of a thin beaded metal chain dropping to the bottom of the jar caught my attention when I was walking past the elfs this morning in Kiasma.
