Seoul-based artist Teo Park created a kinetic-inspired art sculpture that allows visitors to engage with an interactive water tank. 'May the Force be With You' is controlled by the viewer's hand movements.

Kinect technology allows the viewer to feel like a Jedi. They can move their hands around and feel like they really have the ability to control the water movements inside the tank with their minds.

Modern art today is really changing the viewer's role when it comes to admiring art. The best part about the installation is that viewers can see the art change in front of them. It as if they are part of the art. Contrary to a still-life painting at a gallery, 'May the Force be With You' lets a visitor become a contributing artist.
