Dans ce DVD de vidéo interactive à génération aléatoire, les images et les sons, sans cesse reconfigurés et altérés, dévoilent un univers éphémère et changeant.
Ce titre questionne notre relation aux images et aux sons, ainsi que les outils qui nous servent à créer/regarder/entendre.
Créé par le collectif projectsinge, Monkey_Party utilise le DVD vidéo d’une façon créative qui met de l’avant la vidéo interactive et des associations aléatoirs. Monkey_Party s’inscrit à la croisée de plusieurs courants : la performance, la vidéo, le cinéma expérimental, l’art contemporain et l’art numérique.
