Lights contact (FR)

Fest : Scenocosme_ lights contacts


Lights Contacts is a sound and light interactive installation with body and skin of the audience, perceptible by two people and more. It proposes an original stagings among spectators’ bodies which are transformed into real sonorous human instruments.

When a first person puts his hand on the shiny ball, his body gets sensitive and reactive to other living bodies. Alone, there is no reaction. He must invite another person to touch his skin. Each touch generates variable sounds and lights which evolve according to the proximity of contacts and spectators.

In this intimist artwork, the electrostatic energy of bodies are musically felt. Each physical contact between spectators generates a sound with a light color which vary according to intensities of bodies’ electrostatic energy. Through this sensory staging, Scenocosme artists want to provoke, to overturn degrees of proximity that we use in our relationships with known or unknown people.

Gregory Lasserre and Anais met den Ancxt are two artists who work together under the name Scenocosme.

They overturn various technologies in order to create interactive artworks which evolve thanks to social and physic relationships.Their works came from possible hybridizations between the technology and living world (plants, stones, water, wood, humans.,..) which meeting points incite them to invent sensitive and poetic languages. The most of their interactive artworks feel several various relationships between the body and the environment. They can feel energetic variations of living beings and design interactive stagings in which spectators share extraordinary sensory experiences. Their artworks are exhibited in numerous museums, contemporary art centres and digital art festivals in the world.
