Who are we really? Who do we want to be? What do we tell Google, within the intimacy of our telephone, that we would rather not share with the rest of the world?
Artist Romain Tardy presents visitors of GLOW with an unsolicited self-portrait of our current network society by translating the search terms most frequently used in Google and Google News into visual and audio signals within the public space in real time; pulses that are visible and audible both inside and outside the circle.
The Great Indecision Council is a reflection for us all. An image that shows humanity as it really is, not how it wants to be seen. The work takes the shape of a mesmerizing and hypnotic large-scale light and sound installation, whereby visitors are surrounded by a circle of light, sound, words and computer-generated, mystical chants. The Great Indecision Council invites visitors into the middle of this enchanting work while being watched by spectators close-by, and maybe even far above us.
The Great Indecision Council, an installation by Romain Tardy, was originally commissioned by Into The Great Wide Open. The presentation during GLOW 2018 is offered by MU, STRP and GLOW. Sponsored by Stayinc.
