This video is an extract from our interactive artwork installation Metamorphy.
The spectators are invited to touch and explore the depth of the semi-transparent veil. This symbolic skin has an elasticity which is incorporated within the process of metamorphosis : the veil is deformed when the spectator interacts, and it becomes again rigid when the spectator stops touching it.
The exploration of depths into the veil reveals various meditative universes, through organic, liquid or incandescent substances.
Metamorphy creates an ambiguity between a real physical space, a virtual space materialized by the reflection of a mirror, and a virtual space generated by the videoprojections of a digital device. In this sensory artwork, real reflections and virtual images get mixed up, give the illusion of a distorted reality.
Like a music score, each interaction zone on the fabric offers sonorous matters (sound effects) when the spectator pushes on it with his hand. Then, when nobody interacts with the veil, it becomes rigid and virtual matters disappear. The spectator’s reflection only remains.

As media artists, we explore capacities of technologies in order to draw sensitive relationships through specific stagings where senses are augmented. Our works came from possible hybridizations between the living world and technology which meeting points incite us to invent sensitive and poetic languages. Our work generate sensory relationships and create symbolic mirrors between natural elements and the body : the technology disappears in order to enhance sensory relations with various elements. We invent sonorous or/and visual languages. We translate the exchanges between living beings and between the body and its environment.Through a poetic interpretation of invisible mechanisms, technologies allow us to draw sensory relationships, and to generate unpredictable living interactions.
