reservoir_bots

 


Game mod for audio/visual live performances in various locations. 2004


Resembling a flaneur in an unknown city the bot moves through a "ludic 3D environment" - moved by the hand of the player - robbed of his identity which the player has adopted for herself. It seems as if those she encounters have a life of their own. But this is an illusion - they are caught in loops of movements which stop abruptly and thus destroy the illusion. The moving flaneur becomes a VJ producing ever new images which with the beat of live-generated sounds melt into an "emersive media environment".

"action is system!" Talcott Parsons
