VIRLAB - experiment viruses choreographies
Virlab is a web3D experimentation about viruses choreographies. It enables one to choose the protagonists of a dance, to create one's own scene, then to impulse the "dancers" so that they develop random choreography.Viruses displacements are generated by the simulation of physical reactions (friction, elasticity, gravity, collisions). It 's by adding complex reactive phenomena that virlab gives a sensation of free movments. The spectActor, by his action, is adding an exterior disruptive event, and allows to escape from the linearity of animation. The sum of possible events makes the action open, alterable and alive.

Virlab is above all a work of fiction. Altering and exploiting differently simulation, a tool which is meant for concrete applications, enable the artist to disrupt its traditional codes, to make his own an already connoted space, thus expressing a wish for cross-disciplines in order to disclose its machinery in a better way. That mixing of genres might lead the viewer to call into question the codes of the received informations.
