ARTEPLAYA: original website
“Vamos a l’arteplaya” (“D’une arteplage l’autre”) is a documentary video exploring the interaction between art, humanity and technology during expo.02, the swiss national exhibition. Beyond its quick and dirty dogma-esthetic, the 20-minute video piece is a kaleidoscope of surreal encounters, exhilarating interviews and stunning performances carried out by agent provocateur Nicolas Goulart.
Furthermore, the authors take a close look at the participative strategies that reshape this mass-cultural event into a test-bed for new surveillance technologies (motion-tracking, localisation, user-database interaction…).
The video footage discarded during the editing sessions gave birth to a minimalistic text-adventure game, originally a macintosh application, but now available as an online-game.
