The idea of an army of rats as both a shadowy threat from below and as a mirror image of human society is as old as civilization itself. Rat Tales is an installation that aims to bring to life our manifold relationship with the animals. Visitors enter a bright square on the ground. Realized using basic visual tracking technology and a digital projection on the ground they are soon being circled by computer-generated rats. The rats disperse in front of the towering people but yet over time they will assemble into rat tails of letters which form various quotes relating to our coexistence with rats.
