Random International将伦敦的Roundhouse剧院用无人机填满
Random International fills London's Roundhouse theatre with "swarming" drones


一群巨型球形的无人机嗡嗡地响彻在伦敦的Roundhouse剧院,这是由Rain Room创始人Random International组织着最新的安装。

这种安装形式构成了北伦敦剧院名为+/-人类的活动计划的一部分,整体由Wayne McGregor进行策划。

A flock of giant spherical drones move in response to visitors inside London's Roundhouse, which is hosting the latest installation by Rain Room creators Random International.
The Zoological installation forms part of a programme of events at the north London theatre named +/- Human and curated by choreographer Wayne McGregor.



这群膨胀的气球——被Random International描述为“有机体”——配备了螺旋桨的装置围绕着圆形的空间悬飞。


Visitors can engage with the installation throughout the day, although on Friday and Saturday evenings it also doubles as the setting for a new dance work created by McGregor and his company.
Zoological sees a crowd of inflated balloons – described by Random International as "organisms" – equipped with propellors buzz around the circular space.
The drones' path is determined by an algorithm, which dictates that they move around in a flocking formation. Motion sensors pick up on visitors moving around the space, forcing the drones to follow.


Random International联合创始人Dean Jannes Koch告诉Dezeen,“我们想创造这种有机体,这种生活在空间中的人造生命形式,会根据人们的行为做出反应。我们一直在考虑如何使它们的群体行为更加具象和有形。”


"We wanted to create this organism, this artificial life form which lives in the space, floats and moves around and reacts to people," Random International co-founder Hannes Koch told Dezeen. "We'd been thinking about ways of somehow making swarming or flocking behaviour more physical and more tangible."
"We always wanted to do it kinetically, and to stimulate something that is airborne. So that's what we looked at – helium-filled balloons that fly collectively according to flocking and swarming behaviour."





Koch believes that the way his team has managed to control the drones' movement is what makes Zoological unique.
"We've seen flight formations by drones, that's old hat – but having airborne objects that fly according to an algorithm is something that's fairly untested," he said.
"Then having them react to members of the audience, to display maybe very basic forms of behaviour or signs of curiosity, or shyness or aggression – we're starting to learn how we teach the beasts how to behave."


为了提高催眠和身临其境的体验,该装置配有一首由Mark Pritchard特制的音乐。



To heighten the hypnotic and immersive experience, the installation is accompanied by a piece of music specially composed by Mark Pritchard.
The dance performance reacts to both the installation and Pritchard's score – exploring the relationship between "human bodies and technological entities".
"We leave [McGregor] with complete freedom in developing choreography," said Koch. "His whole vision was this addition and subtraction of human interaction, and I think he curated the music in response to the way he wanted to see our artwork sitting in the space."


根据Koch的描述,他们在Dezeen看到一篇关于他们早期项目的文章之后,介绍道动物学标志着Random International与McGregor的第五次合作。


Zoological marks the fifth time Random International has collaborated with McGregor – who, according to Koch, approached them after seeing an article about one of their early projects on Dezeen.
The London studio is behind the massively successful Rain Room, which allows visitors to play in the rain without getting wet. It was first installed at London's Barbican Centre, and its popularity led to a tour of locations including New York and Shanghai before it was moved to LACMA.
