Interactive Multimedia Installation
3 Videos, 2 Live Goldfish, Fish Tank with Stand, Data Projector, B/W Monitoring Device, Sensors and Mac Computer.
Having exhibited at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Boston Center for the Arts, Triple Candie Gallery, NYC and Gallery 456, NYC, this interactive project involves two live goldfish, three video clips in random projection as demonstrated simultaneously in the documentation, data projection, surveillance system and a computer. The floating and indeterminate movement of the fish under a surveillance camera placed in the center of the fish tank triggers spatial/temporal relationships and unveiled feelings of vulnerability and uncertainty in human experience shaped by video projection of a floating, dislocated and out of control astronaut in space controlled by a computer. In this work, the goldfish and the astronaut are both transplanted and artificial subjects, one passive and the other active, one being controlled and the other out of control. Viewers in the space are positioned as observers among the interconnected world of nature, man and technology.
