The Replicator (2000)


Type: short video, S-VHS

Consisted of a black cartoon rabbit that grows into more rabbits using a standard algorithm in an artificial life (ALife) application.

The ALife algorithm saves the data for the rabbit but in the phases between it seems to be that everything is messed out and randomized, a state of a continuously shift between some sort of random and order at the same time it grows.

The short sequence was in loops so when the rabbits covered the screen it all started over again.

The sound with it was an unsynchronized clip from the sound I was using in the installation Party for the Rabbit: a flag pole’s sound, but just one clap repeating itself and with a long reverb added to it.
