Pheromones

2009


keywords (in alphabetical order): sam's; camera tracking; pizza; trails; motion tracking; site specific; interactivity; installation

We know that insects leave chemical cues for others who follow. These cues are like directive signs (words) but without the symbolic representation of abstract concepts we tend to assume as the primary focus. There is, in a sense, a linguistic quality to the pheromone process, and yet it is hardly a one-to-one dictionary type meaning intentionally conveyed for maintaining and refining culture. What precisely does a facial reaction mean? It is often very unclear, and yet we understand something conveyed. Acting conveys information in mannerisms that could not be otherwise articulated. We illustrate this idea of 'symbolic' trails with the installation piece Pheromones.
