Syllogism

2006. 2 channel video. Interactive installation (Motion Capture dress + Dance performance). 

Syllogism is a kind of logical argument that applies deductive reasoning to arrive at a conclusion based on two or more propositions that are asserted or assumed to be true.

For example, knowing that all men are mortal (major premise) and that Socrates is a man (minor premise), we may validly conclude that Socrates is mortal.

In the installation Syllogism headlines from Online newspapers are transform into bizarre headlines through a deductive database founded on Aristotelian logic. Syllogisms is a poetic metaphor about the fake information on the Internet.

The project was realice for Art Futura 2006 with the collaboration of Digital Pez and Nino Maza.
