Activity Bac à sable



Description

The artwork

Bac à sable

Installation and performance

This is a performance art installation about video games and the players’ social behaviours.

To better understand this topic, the artist plays a virtual world-building game throughout the whole of Nuit Blanche.

For the purpose if this installation, the lighting is turned down low to evoke a tense and lonely atmosphere. The room is decorated with various geek culture objects and posters, and the ground is littered with trash. The trash piles grow as the performance goes on.

Submerged by this mound, all this garbage becomes a metaphor for our consumer society, an aspect of the world the player manages to escape during his long hours of play.
