Les artistes ayant créé cette oeuvre ont la couleur rose comme point de départ. Cette couleur est, selon les cultures et la classe sociale, porteuse de signes sexuels ou de pouvoir, de succès. Cette oeuvre propose à l'internaute un hypertexte dont les hyperliens sont invisibles, un jeu vidéo basé sur la chasse au renard (le terme «pink» y étant associé), une bande sonore sous format mp3. L'internaute pourra aussi se procurer un DVD des artistes en communiquant avec eux par courriel.
Mark had a healthy appetite. He really knew how to cook. On a good night he would wander into a dinner party and charm your shirt off. He liked to tell stories. He liked to delight. He wanted to be watched. He was a charmer, a boy’s boy. He had a nasty cut. Mark had a problem. He read strange books. He had a few too many. He had a good time. He had an eye for art and an ear for tongues. He had a few drinks, a few pink parts.
« We envision The Pink of Stealth as a conceptual sound art teen movie with a companion video game. The formal concerns in this text-sound piece grew out of our engagement with sound art, academic computer music, and popular film. In this work we tell the story as much through text as through artificially created rooms for the voice, surround positioning, and enhanced speech melody. Many of the non-vocal sounds in the piece are created from high-resolution recordings and processing of two mbiras (used in our prelude to the hunt), a fox whistle (used to lure a fox in the hunt), and recordings of foxes themselves used in the 5.1 mix. The audio for this piece was produced at 48khz/24 bit resolution. The hypertext pages are designed to mirror the narrative leaps and vocal spatialization in the sound piece. The online game "Foxhunt" is styled after early home video game systems. »
