[EcHo] is a live digital installation and playful..

The audience is invited to play with their own image, to choose the trace that they want to leave in the machine. .

In our contemporary societies, where the image is omnipresent due to the multiplicity of dissemination and capture media, EcHo raises the question of the control we have on our image.

Each person passing in front of the module of mirrors will see his image materialize on large screen, inviting him to manipulate it as it wishes. The more it plays with the module, with its image, the more the machine offers it "material". Images of other spectators who have already passed and whose "trail" travels with installation throughout the world, like a social network parallel and palpable.

Images of "La Danseuse" allegory both of the ego of each, of the digital memory, and of the collective unconscious.

The public is invited to plunge their hands inside this hemisphere to generate images and sounds through the use of sensors.

The interaction is an integral part of this installation, in different forms. First a digital interaction through gestural capture, but also analog by the possibility given to the public to play with smoke, a spray of water, light.

Hemisphere is an organic, immersive experience. The sound is generated with the fingertips and images are created in the cauldron inside the hands, like a hologram, an illusion.

It is an experience to live from within by the "inter-actor", but also from the outside by the audience. Thus, each man - machine pair creates a different universe that is built and transformed into direct before our eyes. The computer has a free will allowing it to enter into a form of dialogue with the interactor. More than a means of control, it is a real interface of exchange between the man and the machine.

Ambulatory multimedia installation

From "The invention of Morel" by Adolfio Bioy Casares

On a deserted island, a fleeing litigant discovers fantastic things when he thinks he is alone ... Adapted from the invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares, Fugitive (s) addresses the notion of temporal paradox.
