Marotta & Russo: Mouse Trap

Mouse Trap

2006-2011, interactive animation, interactive installation

The trap is a gadget created and arranged to capture an animal. But the trap is the "mouse" itself. The mouse is able to cage the hand for a large part of the day in a few centimeters of space and in a handful of inches of light. The hand: the limb whose presence defines the man and whose absence defines the animal.
