Orphan mask


Programming of Pierre Huyghe's work: Orphan Masks

This project encompasses ideas found in the field of computability and biology, game studies or in any form of lineage.

A human couple wearing light masks, that attract the photosensitive insects, play with the dices and follow their instructions. Their light exchange is programmed according to instinct behaviours, sequences of seduction signal, bioluminescent flash pattern that insects emit prior copulation. Aside the Mating Masks, there is Orphan, a light mask with an auto-generative and chaotic program.
