The encyclopedic collection of stuffed animals shown at the museum left us with the obsession of imagining them come to life. From ‘Night at the Museum’ to ‘Pinocchio’ and ‘Toy Story’ this recurring scenario established how much of a popular fascination it is. Subsequently, we decided to design a lively installation where animals placed in a cabinet spontaneously and freely move within.
Across the independant screens runs a flowing animation featuring repeated cycles of activity. It mixes all sorts of species in the most unnatural way : ocean and nocturnal animals as well as preserved specimens in jars.
Questioning our relation to the screen, recycled computer monitors are randomly placed in a cabinet and cascade naturally to the floor.
