CONCEPT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF SLONOZIL ART OBJECT
program: interactive sculpture, art object, platform
authors: Anton Kochurkin, Alexey Kochurkin
Self-propelled interactive sculpture 6 m high is designed to be presented in open space. The mission of the sculpture is to pay attention to the problem of extermination of African elephants, and its image is inspired by the style of Burning Man.
The elephant was created on the basis of a ZIL truck - transverse, longitudinal and tangential plywood circuits are fixed on a metal frame. Different dynamic effects are created on the «body» of the sculpture, for example, cuts on the ears create many intersections of lines and cause a hypnotic feeling from the emerging moire.
Devices are mounted in the «belly» of the Elephant that create a sense of the life of the sculpture, allow you to create a diverse atmosphere and interact with the viewer: eyes-headlights, sound guide, LEDball, lighting, smoke machine, folding staircase on the back, where the dance floor is planned.
The bright sides of the Elephant are symbolic: on the one hand, these are «tattoos» milled in wood, traditionally used by peoples living in Africa, on the other hand, these are landscapes of elephants.
