The installation combines innovative technology and narrative aesthetics. Four mechanical robot arms simultaneously bring four screens to life. Onlookers are shown a choreography in which a constant dialogue takes place between the robot arms, the dancers and the screen. The screens act as windows, with a suggestion of a larger imaginary world behind them. What you see is only a framed portion of reality. The movements of the screens sometimes form a limitation and at other times a means of seeing a larger whole behind what is immediately visible.
The Gift by the Belgian cross-media production company Fisheye encourages you to take ‘thinking outside the box’ extremely literally.
