This Sculpture Simulates Politics with Angry, Indecipherable Beeping
Video within. Fairly cool description of the plastic mannequins' Arduino-driven "conversation" program that cause them to talk back depending on how long they've been "listening" to each other, even with parameters for ignoring one another. "The act never reaches a conclusion and it is performed in a non-deterministic way," Cherouvim told The Creators Project. "Their language is incomprehensible, causing the viewer to lose interest in the conversation and politics all together." Sounds like modern politics to me!
