  • Swarm (1996) | Jane Prophet
    Organism 1911 3 larger than life sized hives were laid out in the gallery on first sight these appear normal garden hives but on closer inspection it is clear that they are custom made with the plastic coated surface associated with computers Each hive houses images in a different way The second beehive shown in the middle of the space controls images from an artificial algorithmic swarm housed on a PC which is stored in the beehive Moving images of 3 swarms are projected out of the hive and onto the wall The swarms move in real time across the wall corresponding to the movements of visitors whose position is tracked as they walk on a floor covered with 64 pressure pads Up to 16 people are tracked with the swarms breaking into smaller groups to follow each person Another hive contains 5 screens displayed so that they resemble honeycomb racks Gallery visitors can interact with the screens pulling them up from the hive in the way a beekeeper pulls up frames of honeycombs from a bee hive This triggers small video sequences which are projected from a nearby video projector and caught on the screen of the raised frame
