HAMSTERS - This project is under development
Collaboration with Lawrence Mc Guire, composer, sound artist and curator currently based in The Hague and Brussel.
Hamsters is a work that uses talking and moving hamster toys to reflect on how information and knowledge is spread between individuals and communities and vice versa. Each hamster has five interactive capabilities: sound recording, -manipulation, -playback, -movement and detection. These five functionalities allow us to experiment with and simulate social relationships in and between communities of hamsters. When combined, they serve as metaphorical contexts in which core principles of communication are dealt with. This is done with acknowledgment to ideas from fields such as; Cybernetics, Social sciences, Chaos theory.
A preview of the project was shown in 25th of March in our studio in The Hague.
We are looking for a platform to develop this project.
