Description: GAME OVER | Guillaume Reymond | video performance
GAME OVER est l'un des projets artistiques développés par l'artiste suisse Guillaume REYMOND. Il consiste en une série de films d'animation collaboratifs réinterprétant quelques-uns des tout premiers jeux vidéo. Les pixels sont remplacés par un groupe d'humains qui se déplacent de siège en siège dans une salle de spectacle, durant environs 4 à 6 heures. Chaque "pixel" a ses propres règles et décide comment il/elle doit se déplacer image après image. Une fois, toutes ces images mises en mouvement dans un court-métrage d'animation, se déroule une gigantesque partie de jeu vidéo à échelle humaine. || GAME OVER is one of the art projects developed by the Swiss artist Guillaume REYMOND.

The pixels are replaced by a group of real human-beings that are moving from seat to seat in a theatre during about 4 to 6 hours. Each "pixel" has its own rules and decides what s/he wants to do for each picture. Once all these pictures are turned into a short animation movie, a giant human-scale video game unfolds "live".
