Under technological advancements, instantaneous bodily responses have become a daily routine. Randy 16 aims to resist this phenomenon. The communication model proposed by Shannon-Weaver shows that the path from the message source to its destination involves various transformation elements and the influence of "noise." Drawing from cases of communication failures, Randy 16 reverts to media that have been rendered obsolete by time. It diverges from the modern technological pursuit of efficiency and optimal pathways by engaging in various modulations, extensions, and diversions to perform energy transduction and create "erroneous" narratives in the communication framework.

Randy 16 comprises seven sets of horizontally moving rail mechanisms, accompanied by vertically scrolling paper mechanisms and components for marking and detecting dark inscriptions on the paper. The installations are interconnected by wires, transmitting the detected black/white inscriptions on the paper as high/low-level signals to the directly connected unit, simultaneously triggering its marking or lifting actions. Human voice serves as the initial trigger for the device's operation. Different units of the installation replicate each other's images, forming a loop structure akin to the game "Draw on My Back Challenge." However, in this scenario, the participants form a circle, and the humans are replaced by "flawed" machines, with the resulting chaotic lines being viewed as the emotional expression of the installation itself.
