But sometimes an invasion is successful, and the foreign virality ends up reprogramming the eco-code to serve its own purposes. The installation deploys an external biological agent to infiltrate and disrupt the body-ecosystem of a virtual human, resulting in a state that we regular humans can perceive as mental illness. A well known game character has been chosen to be deconstructed as the actor, as that is how most people today are introduced to and come to know virtual humans.
Data from a contaminated biologic culture a mold species growing in a petri dish are continuously monitored via a digital microscope and measured with a set of bioelectric sensors. The system evolves in time — at the beginning, the virtual humans have a reasonably high level of mimetic semblance to humans as we know them — they act as convincing conscious persons, engaging visitors in eye contact and speaking to them.
Different emotions appear on the virtual faces, depending on the degree to which the facial recognition likes or dislikes the situation in the room. These processes are over time slowly disrupted by the growing contamination, resulting in increasing levels of perceived digital madness. Concept Description. A pioneering work, inspired by science and philosophy which later gave rise to transgenic art and bio-art, homogene is an interactive installation that explored the possible implications of genetically combining humans with animal and plant DNA, at a time when legality of cloning, and violations of moral and ethical codes of conduct in bio-engineering were widely and fiercely discussed for the first time.
Would the possibility of bio-engineering and then a growing a plant that closely resembles your parent, help? The result being something that is not quite human but that is also not just a plant. It is a combination of the purity that exists in both, the essence of affection one has for their close relative and the serene joy one receives from planting a tree.
Speakers are built-in inside the sculptures themselves and an overhead camera tracks the movement of people around the objects. They react with sound, the expression of the artwork behaviour of the soundscape depends on the behaviours and choices of those engaged with it. The observer becomes an interactant, and the interactant becomes a co-creator: the process of engaging with the installation results in a co-construction of the artwork and of the artwork's meaning. The sequential experience of the work is different for each participant, and many facets of the work are not immediately available, but appear during the time spent with it.
