Meet TED 2014 Fellow Shih Chieh Huang, a Taiwanese-American artist who dissects and disassembles the mundane detritus of our lives – household appliances, lights, computer parts, toys, plastic objects – transforming them into surreal, animated “living” organisms. Huang’s work explores bioluminescence — the emission of light by living organisms such as fireflies and deep-sea fishes — making for a spectacular, mesmerizing array of color.

Check out his mechanical organisms in action:
