Ildflue is a projected installation I did
together with Rasmus Hildonen. It uses the dynamics of
flocking behavior to create a astonishing light experience.
A few hundreds of small micro-controller "bugs"
trapped in sample-jars hang from park-tree branches.
They communicate with both visible and for humans invisible
light-signals. Creating a dynamic flashing landscape similar
with real firebugs. When certain parameters are present
they go into collective behavior, filling the dark night
with sudden light.
was refused by the annual art exhibition Høstutstillingen.
By some described as a promising sign of actually having
created new contemporary art.
Flocking behavior is very interesting.
I wanted to look into the technology to create something
inspiring. Often when this subject is researched it is the
prospect of creating new killer-machines for the army. The
challenge, how to get a flock of robots thru a door and
reach their target without clashing together or been caught
up by lack of decision…
