Set loose in a rat race like maze, Flag bearing interns must navigate the complex world of an international art fair, using only crowdsourcing to determine what art they should look at and which booth attendants they should talk to. Each intern is electronically tethered to a brand ambassador and an iPad, containing an interactive map of the art fair, as well as the location of the intern. Art fair goers consult with the brand ambassadors, and send their interns where they please, allowing the audience to enjoy any part of the art fair from wherever they are standing, while the intern if forced to withstand the crowds, absorb the art and relay the experience to the audience.
Intern Testing Facility was commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario and performed at the opening night preview of Art Toronto 2015
