The Amoeba Strategy


14 self-propelled suitcases

14 self-moving suitcases on wheels travel across the room; upon colliding with an obstacle (wall, object, plinth, visitor, another suitcase) they stop, turn 180 degrees and continue their journey until a new obstacle appears. The amoeba, lacking a nervous system, interacts with its surrounding environment through its cell membrane: when faced with a noxious, irritating or nutritional stimulus, it reacts in a primary way by approaching or moving away from it. La estrategia de la ameba was developed by Lucas González with the support of LAPSo (Laboratorio de acústica y percepción sonora at the Universidad de Quilmes, Argentina).
