Through participatory engagement, this interactive installation considers our individual and communal relationships to power and systems of control. It complicates a youthful strategy game, often credited for instilling self regulation, by positing a drone as the game leader. Participants advance or freeze along a designated route within the courtyard of the Yerevan Computer Research Development Institute (YCRDI), leading up to the LOGOS EXPO Center. The gesture reflects the meticulous labors of scientific research even as it calls for caution in the deployment of advanced technologies.
The work is part of the Sign Stealing project and was originally commissioned as part of the Armenia Art Fair: Open Space platform curated by Eva Khachatryan. Additional thanks to performer/facilitator Hasmik Tangyan and to CEC ArtsLink for their development support.
