Society of Stickpeople

Real-time Video Projection, 2009. Keywords: installation, site-specific, society of stickpeople, software

sos-installation-featured

Starting with an almost empty landscape, a virtual population of stickpeople awakens and begins to interact with each other.

The society grows and builds up their environment, and eventually dies off, leaving an empty landscape of abstract buildings, the only remainder of their existence. The artwork invites contemplation on the rise and fall of human societies, and the impact (or lack thereof) of individual versus collective action.
