"Non Human Device #03" — Boris Chimp 504

During a recent exploration to Kepler22b, an exoplanet from the Kepler-22 solar system, Boris Chimp 504 found some metallic objects on its surface. Though the origin of this object is totally unknown, it is probably a piece of technology from an extraterrestrial civilization. It is believed that it’s a part of a machine, a mechanism or a device of some kind. Recent investigations on the object lead to believe that it is an interface to control the position and orientation in space and time of something bigger, probably a spaceship. The device responds to touch, and generates an electromagnetic field that interferes with audiovisual signals and causes space-time distortions.

Non Human Device #003 is the 3rd part of a series of interactive installations where experimental audiovisual devices are explored. They are based on the speculative narrative of the project Boris Chimp 504 , an audiovisual live performance that tells the adventures of a chimp cosmonaut in space. Each installation is based on a new extraterrestrial object found by Boris, during his missions through the deep space. In this installation the audience will be able to interact with the audiovisual signs of this non human device and experience the effects it causes on the space-time continuum.
