Larger-than-life sculptures of human suffering by Dadang Christanto.

Daan Roosegaarde’s Interactive Landscape Dune in Dog-Leg Tunnel, Cockatoo Island is a hybrid of nature and technology made from large amounts of fibre optics which reacts to the sounds and motions of people walking by, visitors become active participants, having a direct influence on the interactive artwork’s identity. His sculptures are tactile high-tech environments in which viewer and space become one. This connection, established between ideology and technology, results in what he calls 'techno-poetry’.
