Game Art. 2012

The work shows a peaceful landscape in springtime, in which float in the wind many Dandelion’s seeds. With a modified police baton that is connected through Bluetooth to the game, is possible to hit those seeds. When they are beaten, several scores are shown which value equals in numbers to the quantity of persons that were damaged by the repression of police or military forces in popular protests in several countries, since end of the XVIII century until 2012. The illumination of the scene gets slowly darker and the flying seeds disappear. After a moment in darkness and without any more targets to hit, the whole ambience recover the original status and the seeds of dandelion continue flying in the air, ready to be beaten again.
