Vice Controller places its audience in a pivotal position to oversee and manipulate the health, evolution, and eventual fate of a culture of multi-cellular roundworms that possess nervous systems, sexual cycles and digestive organs.
Through magnification, projection, and analysis of the roundworm community, it will create an atmosphere of constant surveillance and absolute control. The audience is invited to directly control the supply of food, nutrients, and mutagens to the culture.
Vice Controller constitutes both a re-creation and a representation of our networked ecosystems and societies.This installation amplifies a scientific process to present an uncensored, tactile experience of our ability to direct biological and environmental change, and to thus question the nature of our responsibilities.
