This project is a first in the series of quasi-theatrical performances, which THE BLIND starts in collaboration with composers, artists of computer animation, etc. We call it BIOMECHANICAL ATTRACTIONS.
The specialty of these performances ( attractions, show) consists in the unique space of an artificial life, being created by joint efforts of mechanisms and human beings. A synthesis of mechanics, choreography, computer animation and sound effects …
Artificial environment, inanimate persons, artificial lighting, artificial stories, being told by artificial voices. Programmed sound wave instead of vocal nuances, radio control system instead of psychophysics. A Love story, as a story of breakage. A story of utilization (KILLBAKER).
The project of KILLBAKER is an installation, which consists of :
- one mechanical construction;
- one electromechanical construction;
- one radio controlled device;
- one human being;
- one sound system.
Numerous screws, nuts, gears, servos, radio-microphones, receivers and transmitters, arranged in ensemble, plays a drama of
unrealized relations between man and woman, as a story of non-
coincidence of the mechanical parameters. Impossibility of Love as
a problem of incompatibility of models.
The interaction of such kind always ends like breakage of mechanisms.
What happens to the World, when a machine breaks? What disappears, leaves the World together with its mechanical soul?
And What comes into the World?
What Flowers blossom on the sorrowful ways of Utilization?
