Artist Statement:

    Tentacle is best described as a transmitting sculpture. The Beeoffs studio in Stockholm forms the main body with tentacles at several sites: Kiasma, Stockholm lKungstradOrdeni, Paris iLaVillette), New York [Eyebearril and Montreal (SAT). At each location there will be a camera and a monitor/projector. The images from the cameras will be transmitted to the Beeoff studio in Stockholm where they will then be combined into a single, TV-quality stream.

    The Tentacle is a piece by the Swedish artist group Beeoff (Mikael Scherdin, Olle Huge and Tomas Linell). The group was formed in the mid 1990’s and have since then been exploring the boundaries between analogue and digital, and new and traditional media – always focusing on real-time production and distribution.
