Run Motherfucker Run

image from run motherfucker run

Remember when a trip to an art gallery was a quiet, sedate, contemplative experience? Yeah, well, that was before Run Motherfucker Run, Dutch artist Marnix de Nijs' interactive installation. The viewer (participant? competitor? victim?) stands on a large treadmill before a film and 3-D graphic projection of an dark and spooky industrial landscape. As you begin to run, the film begins to play, your movement on the treadmill directly matching the changes on the screen. To keep things interesting it's not clear what path you must navigate, and if you slow down the image on the screen begins to fade away.

Run Motherfucker Run just ended a... um... run at the Urban Explorers Festival in the Netherlands. There are stills and some large videos on the RMR website.
