AboutGenetic Moo, participants of Papay Gyro Nights 2011 Art Festival, is coming back to Papay and will create an interactive artpiece in response to the locations of the island.
Genetic Moo build living installations in pixels and light. They have been making interactive video installations since 2008 and thousands of people have interacted with their artworks, most recently at this year's Glastonbury.
In darkened spaces they project beguiling and unsettling creatures, combining elements of the human and the animal. These phantasmagoria respond in a variety of life-like ways to audience motion, sound and touch. The works are driven using hand written software and a range of sensing devices and can be adapted to different scales and locations. People have been repelled and delighted by the grotesque creations of Genetic Moo, often at the same time. Their magical animations pose questions about the illusion of life. Where do their creatures come from, what are they, where are they going?
Genetic Moo have shown extensively and are resident artists for Exploding Cinema. They were recently accepted into the prestigious London Group - their first interactive artists
