‘Looking at a Horse’ is an interactive experiment that changes its look depending on how many people are looking at it.
Art has a value in being looked at. Our perception of its value can be linked to where the work is viewed and who is viewing it. To look at art is to place it in relation to ourselves and the space around it. ‘Looking at a Horse’ plays on this by changing its value in response to visitors.
Moment by moment, in real-time, the look is updated in response to its surroundings, creating a feedback loop where the viewer and context are part of the piece. Simply, the more people viewing the piece, the more beautiful it will become.
