Monkey_Party is an interactive video installation that aims to sneak into our daily lives by manipulating common household audio-video equipment (TV, DVD player, stereo …) in order to open our senses to new experiences. It’s an alternative audiovisual encounter between performances, video, experimental cinema and digital art. Within a multidimensional universe, the six works that make up Monkey_Party, explores the themes of modifications, displacement and transformation through our different spheres of emotions and sensations. The user is required to take part in this universe. He or she needs to react with the remote control to search, wait, find, and immerge into the world of Monkey_Party.
