AROUGATE @ Piksel07

AROUGATE – APO33 INSTALLATION- PIKSEL FESTIVAL – BERGEN 2007 from apo33 on Vimeo.

Arougate is an installation that involves the environnement of the space he is invited to hunt in.

Arougate is a digital beast who hunts information, tracks it, feeds on it, and generally reacts to it. Arougate behaves like a wolf when he eats his ‘preys’ ; no one can disturb him without consequence; the combination of a machinic system with the poetic-modelisation of animal reactions creates an uncontrollable noise activity in a specific place.

Arougate is composed of audio, video, data sensor extensions which enable him to hunt in any situation; the bestial mechanism operates fast interactions on the hunted information which is then divided into two layers: the digestive mechanism of the beast’s digital belly and his swift reaction to hunting in a dangerous steppe. The outcome of these interactions is redistributed in space with the help of video & audio signals, spatialized by different devices (speakers, TV radios, wall projection…etc).

When people invade the digital den, they enter simultaneously the beast’s belly and mind, or rather, a strong chaotic mixture of wires (electrical, networked, metal…etc), speakers, machines (nuxbox), radios and others unexpected objects, where vibrations (light and air) come to crash!
