brain island

live simulation, infinite duration
at 12th Lyon Biennial, Lyon, France
Sept 11, 2013 -- Jan 5, 2014

"A video-game gunman, a flock of herons, and an island of plants endlessly mix and mutate - not only in shape and behavior but also in status: as protagonists, as extras, as props. The camera moves through the simulation like a nature documentarian, uncertain as to what in the frame is truly of interest, hedging on every emergent story. It learns to focus on small disruptions, where lines of influence are revealed and status gets reshuffled. A 'who' becomes a 'what', figure becomes ground, noise becomes information. The only stable view is of change itself. "
