Virtual Singer (requires shockwave player)

Virtual Singer (2000-2003) differs from regular animations: its flow cannot be predicted and doesn’t end. The melody is created in real-time by user’s computer. The motionless singer, trapped behind the wooden fence, strives to be somehow alive, manifesting his rudimentary freedom through random seed generated by the machine.

This very simple, non-linear concept reveals a parallel between the mechanical determinism of the random function driving the singer’s melody and our daily life, which is more and more compartmentalized, stratified, modeled, simulated and empty.”
