The Incubator is an art piece which was initially installed as part of TechArtICT’s Dreamgrass installation at Exploration Place Fall 2022. Within the installation it was the machine where faceless children were created and indoctrinated.
A Center TV displayed a teleprompter which offered encouragement for viewers to become participants, reading into a microphone placed at center stage. Two TVs on either side of a teleprompter documented in realtime the indoctrination process the viewers unwittingly participated in. Jagged lines from the two side TVs morphed into the image a child.
