Der Rattenfänger Revisited
Extend a new level of story telling using living organism, with a help of algorithm.

This installation employing thousands of live brine shrimp which are guided on a random walk journey by an algorithm-controlled and servo motor-powered laser pointer system, Der Rattenfänger Revisited attempts to bring basic life and modern technology together under the hood of the classic German legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
I did this installation under the umbrella of Generative Art that initiated by Frieder Nake. I proposed to extend a new level of story telling and bio art.
Looking into the behaviour of brine shrimp. They follow laser. Good.
