(BE) - UMwelt-VIRUtopia
Around 20 robots equipped with laser beam technology execute swarming behaviours and while doing so creating patterns and a choreography of light and sound. The installation space is filled with artificial smoke evoking a dreamscape. The smoke articulates visibility the laser beams. The project plays on the psychology of borders. What is a border? How psychological is a border? What is security? Can the laser beams be perceived as some sort of kinetic cage? Can we change the architecture through interaction? Can we 'break' the patterns as an audience? Are borders made to be crossed? Can we reprogram space?
