Overview

Enter Inferno, the unforgettable cyborg experience, part robotic dance party, part wake-up call from the future. Machine art is about to meet demonic, in a dynamic crash-merging of spectral mechanics and human imagination.

Participants are fitted with robotic exoskeleton suits and are plunged into the experience.
It is essential to just let yourself go in INFERNO. You are directed by the machine and are no more than a puppet. But in your guts you sense that you are a puppet with incredible power – Maxence Grugier, digitalarti

Spectators witness the extraordinary spectacle of cyborg machines dancing their human subjects.
Inspired by ideas of control and Dante’s depiction of the Circles of Hell, Inferno confronts what it means to surrender to human-robot symbiotic relationships.

In an age of intelligent machines, who is in control?

Created by Louis-Philippe-Demers and Bill Vorn.
