SPIDER GAME is a playable interactive installation freely inspired by the video game Atari Tempest. Composed of 68 light spiders, arranged along a vertical spider web formed by several light tubes. This installation is both a monumental light sculpture and an interactive live performance which comes alive at night.
Designed according to the principle of the division of movement (chronophotography) and kinetics, these characters are arranged in precise positions in space to recreate stories during programmed lighting sequences.
The outer circle is formed by 32 spiders which move around the spider web. Gradually, the action speeds up and the player increases the level until the spider (and the player) fail to escape from the opponents.One against one, or alone against the machine, through the manipulation of a large disproportionate wheel connected with a foot pedal, the show takes place both on the spider web and on the level of the players.
May the best win !
