FISHNET Act III : Bad Bargains & Good Exchange Rates



Act III : Bad Bargains & Good Exchange Rates

FISHNETSTOCKINGS is an interactive installation created by digital artist Joellyn Rock, computer scientist Pete Willemsen, visual artist Alison Aune, and a crew of collaborators. FISHNETSTOCKINGS is inspired and informed by historical mermaid legends and their myriad literary variants. Both cautionary and emboldening, mermaid tales inhabit the blurred boundary between childhood longing and adulthood regret. In variants of the little mermaid tale, we find a story of the passage between worlds. Den Lille Havfrue, Hans Christian Andersen’s sacrificial rite-of-passage story sings out for alternative endings. In FISHNETSTOCKINGS, It’s your turn to voice alternative endings to the bad bargains made by little mermaids.

FISHNETSTOCKINGS was created with the help of the Motion and Media Across Disciplines Lab (MMADLab) at University of Minnesota Duluth. Special thanks to Lisa Fitzpatrick and Justin Anderson

In the gallery installation, the participatory space allows the audience to dive in and make virtual waves inside this alt version of a very old tale. A layered mix of digital video, text, silhouettes and cutout elements are motion activated with a combo of code, Processing and Kinect. Digital projections include a mashup of historical references, folk patterns, and story fragments fished from the project twitter feed. The audience has multiple modes for participation. Move your body inside the projections and interact with hybrid sea creatures that float through the narrative. Or, cast your own words into the twitter net and voice alternative endings to the bad bargains made by little mermaids. Use #fishnet3 to add text to Act III of the story arc. Tweet during the exhibit in Bergen Norway, Aug 3- 10, 2015 at Lydgalleriet Østre Skostredet 3 5017 Bergen Norway
