Sensitive Contacts: Interactive Art by Scenocosme
Telfair Museums' PULSE Art + Technology Festival returns for 2023 with an exhibition of interactive installations by Gregory Lasserre and Anais met den Ancxt, two French artists who work as a duo under the name Scenocosme. Interactivity is integral to their work, which encompasses software, sound, visuals, a variety of materials, and architecture. They also explore invisible relationships within our environment responding to the energetic variations of living beings. This exhibition includes four signature works that allow participants to interact in surprising ways. The installation Metamorphy utilizes a touchable elastic screen that creates an ambiguity between a real physical space, a virtual space materialized by the reflection of a mirror, and a virtual space generated by video projections. Another work, Les Cent Visages offers a face projected on symbolic skin, which when touched reveals parts of other human faces. In both works, the sensitivity of the viewer’s touch affects the experience, while another video installation, Rencontres Imaginaires, invites the viewer to engage virtually with a projected human figure.
