Zanzzzzzare

Installation, Animal, Video installation, 300x200x400cm, 2011
Zanzzzzare is a multimedia installation by Giovanni Longo.
In this virtual habitat 3 mosquitos proliferate up to 500 in 6 minute and "die" in the same time. The user between projector and projection becomes active actor of the scene through ipnotic stimolation audio-visual.
The artwork is handled by a program made in java with factors entirely parameterizable.
Tecnical support by Michele Lacopo.

The dimensionality behind this performance art is an interesting concept with projector, figure and the projection itself. It's also very mysterious. What is the connection between the swarming mosquitos and the woman sitting while flipping through the pages? Is it an expression of a growing interest in what the woman is reading? I think that is the mystery for me.

Very Powerful!After living in Southeast Asia this would be my preferred way to experience mosquitoes!!!!Conceptually I like how it relates to the issues and effects of climate change.As our world grows warmer it increases the range and population of malaria and dengue carrying insects.

è senz'altro impressionante... non vorrei esser stata nel soggetto... sarebbe interessante un esperimento : stessa scenografia con qualcosa che attiri le zanzare vicino al soggetto preventivamente cosparso di Autan... dovrebbero avvicinarsi (le zanzare) ma non troppo, disturbate dall'insetticida, creando un alone vuoto attorno al soggetto stesso :-)

Una buona idea, fatto interessante, ma odio le zanzare, credo che non hanno una funzione positiva... tutto che portano è dolore!
