About 'The Swarm'

In exhibition The Swarm, small computers each play their individual role. As a group, they put together a theatrical performance traveling through various writings, from Kafka's The Metamorphosis to articles on swarm intelligence and research papers on the sixth mass extinction. The main protagonist is a dung beetle facing an existential crisis. The Swarm is developed by artist Anne de Boer. The exhibition is commissioned by Tetem.
