An interactive installation art 'Being in the moment' by Lisa Foo @ Di Mana (Where are) Young: 101 contemporary women artists exhibition at the National Visual Arts Gallery (NVAG), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 25 May - 31 July 2017. Curated by Koon Tan.

Installation of an interactive giant marionette, measuring approximately 15ft in height, made out of jute ropes crocheted to imitate organic life it takes form. The marionette is installed with a cranking mechanism to encourage participation and interaction from the audience, allowing them to control and manipulate the movement of the puppet. The artist intends to create an organic puppet so that the audience will be able to witness the fragility of life through art and the impermanence of being.
