"Volley", by Monica Cook - The Public Art Project for ACP 2011 will be a sound activated, interactive animation (stop motion/claymation) by Monica Cook. Cook's first stop-motion animation video Deuce was selected by the Guggenheim Museum as one of 25 works featured in the "YouTube Play - A Biennial of Creative Video". The global online initiative was a joint venture of the Guggenheim and YouTube, in collaboration with HP, aiming "to discover and showcase the most exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video." Cook's work was selected from more than 23,000 videos submitted.

Her work "Volley" commissioned by ACP and co-sponsored by Flux Projects, will explore human-animal interface: Interspecies communication; animals as totems and deities in early human cultures, etc.

Cook's animation will be activated by the sound of the audience's applause. In order for the animation to play, clapping must continue, once it ceases the visuals stop. The participation with the audience is key; they must give in order to receive, yet, if something appears slightly questionable to be applauding they must decide to continue to applause or yield, knowing they could be equally judged if their interest overrides their ideology.
