Venus Villosa is an installation work with emphasis on a gender issue, highlighting the essential relationships between primitiveness and sexuality. With this interactive Venus generator, when a participant touches the woman's breast-shaped interface, which works through the mechanism of air compression connected to a computer, a strange animal-like sound is emitted in the space, and the image of the body hair of a woman that is supposed to be pretty by nature, changes as it grows. Thus the audience gets involved in the paradox of beauty and ugliness.
