A#2 FLUX is the second interactive installation of the ANIMO cycle. It is set up as a holographic light cage. It relies on the neo -Darwinian theory of Richard Dawkins, who raised the issue of the body as a “survival machina” that is elaborated and blindly programmed to preserve identically “selfish genes” from generation to generation.
Visitors are invited to manipulate flash light and by doing so, they discover a volumetric live size body which reacts to the light as guided by the observation of animal’s specie. Sometime the reaction seems to belong to humans reaction...but what’s make typical human being behavior ?
