Description (in English): 

interactive large scale outdoor environment with non-linear language engine

The Castle is a large scale interactive video projection designed for specific architectural sites. The title makes reference to Kafka's novel of the same name, the work taking as its subject the incomprehensible character of systems of administration and power. The work is composed of four large independently interactive figures, reminiscent of public sculptures on public buildings. It also uses a crude grammar engine to generate short statements, which reflect the activity of the figures and that of the viewers.
