Lecture and exhibition tour, Dorijan Kolundžija.
The project presents a complex system that visually appears as a big digital aquarium. Digital, computer-generated creatures seem to occupy the whole interior space of the object. The very appearance of the object makes the viewers touch the screen and start the interaction. The movement of the viewers induces reactions of the creatures, which show the ability to behave in a very complex manner. Using the animals (or forms that suggest animals) as a personification of technology, this project aims to investigate the interaction between the viewers and not just animals but technology as such.
