Morozov describes the instrument as one that “combines human body and robotic system[s] into a single entity that is designed to automate creative process[es] in an attempt to represent the artist and his instrument as a creative hybrid.” The tool is fashioned with a metal railing, hand controllers, black line sensors and a stepper motor that allows it to glide across the arm.
