Interactive Multimedia Installation

Through this interactive installation, physical contact between spectators is transformed into a variety of lights and sounds, turning the participants into sonorous human instruments and creating curious situations of interaction. In a poetic way, the French artist collective Scenocosme invite the spectator to question and explore the perception of one another.

A first person is invited to put one hand on an interactive shiny ball, then his/her body becomes sensitive and reactive to other living bodies. If the person remains alone, nothing happens, the person must invite someone to touch him/her, they can shake hands, caress or kiss. Each contact generates variable sounds and lights that evolve with the proximity of contacts and participants.

Suitable for all ages
