video for mobile projection atop a vacuum robot cleaner

Cat loves pig, dog, horse, cow, rat, bird, monkey, gorilla, rabbit, duck, moose, deer, fox, sheep, lamb, baby, roomba, nao, aibo is a film that has been made to be projected with a pico projector from a robot vacuum cleaner. The film is shown while the machine randomly wanders around the exhibition space, projecting here and there. During recharge, the film is projected on the wall in front of the vacuum. The film is made up of a collection of videos illustrating the fantasy of interspecific encounters, potential conversations, communication with non-organic entities, relationships that we attribute conversational logic to, animals transported by other animals, on top of robot vacuums, filmed by autonomous machines, filming robots who film themselves, a cat that addresses a plant which communicates with a robot, etc.
