The installation gathers a group of 10 robotic dogs in which some punctual and random bugs emerge (this is almost a pleonasm) in order to ironically illustrate the potential consequences of some functional problems in the system.
It consists of 10 robotic dogs I-Cybie, the same kind of robots that I have already used in my previous installations DogLAB]01 and Dog[LAB]02.
The term which is appropriate for this diversion is "to hack" and not its French translation "pirater" which implies a malicious intention. This hardware modification, this real intrusion into the system sometimes also generates some bugs and various dysfunctionings. But here they are intentional, programmed and deliberately introduced into the program via a random system which will generates them in the different programs of the robots.
These bugs are not fatal but they temporally alter the normal behaviour that a robotic dog can have, mainly its locomotion. Thus some robots behaves strangely from time to time. One of them has to walk by only using its front legs, its back legs being bugged for a while. Another one tries to walk by swimming or crawling. A third one tries to walk by rolling on its side and a last one stands on its head. Some cramps, tremors, falls, all kinds of strange behaviours will appear punctually and then disappear. Nevertheless bugs can also alter the real nature of the robot which will therefore become either aggressive: the robot is doing the guard dog or the wolf, or adopts a sweet behaviour such as cat's one.
