virtual singer (2003)

Virtual Singer is different from regular animations, because its flow cannot be predicted and doesn't end. The melody is created real-time by user's computer. The motionless Singer, trapped behind the wooden fence, strives to be somehow alive, manifesting his rudimentary freedom through random seed generated by the machine.

But his being is contained in eight sounds, and even the "randomness" of his singing is a mathematical derivative of computer's internal clock.

This very simple, non-linear concept reveals a parallel between the mechanical determinism of the random function driving the singer's melody and our daily life, which is more and more compartmentalized, stratified, modeled, simulated and empty.
