Patatas de goma

Concert of car horns and lights

sep 30, 2014

"Patatas de goma" is a venezuelan argot for a car. It means literally "rubber feets". Five cars stand on a public square, a parking, or any other places where cars should be. They become musical and visual instruments, real time orchestrated by the software and the musicians. We use car horns and light bulbs as elements of the partition. It's an artistic situation in a common environment, destabilizing in a ludic mode. We thougth that it's important to hijack this object and all property policies. Wake up !
