Coycet La Mort
robotic installation/performance

dog skull, servos, microcontroller, electronics, wood, aluminium, computer software.

This was created for the Circus of Objects curated by Grant Guy September 2012.

Burlesque, automatons, robotics, circus sideshows and freaks come together with this robotic performance/installation. An ongoing work, Coycet La Mort is based on my experiences with dogs in my Winnipeg North End neighborhod and endless multiple stabbings downtown. Coycet La Moert is the name of this performer and is inspired by early 20th century circus and vaudville performers that created exotic and adventurous personas with fantastical names. Coycet is a dancer and sideshow freak in a surealistic world circus of art.
