What is it: Bad Boys is an autonomous generative installation with a fan, microphones, copper wire, light emitting diodes (led), motors, clips, containers, and a television that flicker, rotate, and vibrate triggered by the sound of the movie Bad Boys. The louder the actions are in the movie, the brighter the leds shine and the faster the motors and fans turn and vibrate. The more active the sounds are in the "Bad Boys" movie, the more active the motors, visuals, and sounds become in the gallery space. The sound from the movie is ported to a set of headphones, where two microphones have been placed to capture and translate that sound into light and motor output.
The television is placed facing the wall to generate an actively changing color field display that reacts to the visible changes in the Bad Boys II movie.
