Occult Chemistry

2000

‘Occult Chemistry’ was created as a miniature installation to be viewed by the video eye of a small robot in the group exhibition ‘Pandora’s Box’ (2000), at InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre in Toronto, Canada and Fylkingen Centre for New Music & Intermedia Art in Stockholm, Sweden.

The robot, (invented by Graham Smith) was remotely controlled, six thousand miles away, by gallery visitors in Stockholm, Sweden, using a high-speed broadband Internet link, while visitors at InterAccess in Toronto, controlled a robot through parallel installations in Stockholm.
