It's a jungle in here (installation view) / Van Sowerwine & Isobel Knowles with Matthew Gingold
How would do people react if someone started behaving inappropriately, or aggressively? Do they try to pretend it isn't happening, or protest and take action?
This is the question posed by 'It's a jungle in here', an interactive installation that inserts two people into a simulated environment and has them respond to a series of increasingly unsettling encounters. Participants interact with the work using either a button or a microphone. The person playing the attacker presses a large button to continue their actions at various points. The person playing the victim can yell into a microphone to protest.
