FILE SAO PAULO 2018
Electronic Language International Festival
“Habitat” explores themes of development as both a solitary and communal process. Specifically how individual action ripples out to affect all of the members of a community while that state of the community conditions the actions of individual members. The participant lie on a structure that oscillates in response to biofeedback from its occupant. As other participants occupy their own structure, they are added to the others’ feedback loop, creating a temporary hive identity. Throughout the exhibition period, “Habitat” will work to achieve a sustainable balance, a restful or tense whole from the sum of its parts.
However, a conscious change of behavior of each participant will result in an evolution of the environment.
