You've Got Bugs!

2006


keywords (in alphabetical order): Behavioral Art; animation; camera tracking; installation; interactivity; live camera feed

In the installation You’ve Got Bugs!, the screen depicts a closed-circuit video of the space in front of the screen, which includes the audience member. The scene is somewhat distorted and discolored but easily recognizable. One may wonder why this particular unappealing effect has been applied. The answer appears. Small virtual insects then crawl onto the scene. The audience member does not know at first, but the insects are crawling toward points of motion. Thus wherever the observer moves, the bugs follow. In the course of discovering what is happening on the screen, the audience member must behave in ways that the gallery setting would not predict. In fact, without this explanation, it would be rather unclear as to why the gallery visitor is ducking and swaying. This unpredictable behavior is rather conspicuous.
