#TWERKBOT

Twerkbot is a bi-pedal wonder created to save mankind from losing touch with the art of dance. Using various sensory stimuli & JAXX patented buttocks technology, it mimics any form of lower body movement at near flawless accuracy. Whether its functions serve as a faithful instructor or a dance floor companion, one thing is certain…the Twerkbot will bring dance back to mankind.

Extract from the EP Arterial, composed by Lusine (Seattle, Washington State – USA)

Album available on Ghostly International

Details : 7 000 photos, 30 min of video, 15 kg of electrical components from old tvs, phones and computers, 5 liters of blood.

The complexity of this electronic track, mixing both cold and warm sounds, inspired me to create something I call "electrorganic" : a mix of blood and human tissues with electronic components like LEDs, screens and boards. The result is an intriguing video, where you don't really know what's happening, but you can imagine that some sort of electronic machine is powered by, or producing blood.

Movies and music videos from the 80s and 90s were also a source of inspiration for this video, there are some sequences that are very small tributes to audiovisual works I love like Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo, Coppola's Dracula, Cameron's Terminator, Carpenter's The Thing, Cronenberg's Videodrome, the music video Digging in the Dirt by Peter Gabriel…
