Matière noire : Vide et matière
Dark matter : Vacuum and matter

Visual and sound interactive artwork
This interactive installation is a black parallelepiped. All interior and exterior surfaces reflect themselves to infinity. A hole allows to enter one's hand inside the box. Once in the volume of the glass box, the hand is covered on both sides by a visual and sound texture that reminds of the flow of particles going through our bodies at all times.


Matière noire : Brouillard quantique
Dark matter : Quantum fog

Visual and sound interactive artwork
The viewer is sitting in front of a glass sphere. He/she is invited to take the time to watch it. When he/she looks at one part of the glass sphere, a visual and sound intrinsic agitation rises in the sphere. If the viewer focuses specifically on one part of the sphere, it becomes brighter and the forms become more distinct. When he focuses an another point of the sphere, this part is lit with the same intrinsic agitation, but sometimes with a different aspect. This sphere allows the viewer to imagine what could be a quantum object at the human scale.






Matière noire : Les symétries discrètes
Dark matter : The discrete symmetries

Visual interactive artwork
The viewer is faced with a mirror that will choose randomly symmetries to apply to his reflection. These symmetries are inspired by the 3 discrete symmetries of the subatomic world. Each "universe" shown by the mirror corresponds to an "alternative" universe, where events can be plausible or unexpected. In the same way, the symmetries of the subatomic world result in processes which are authorized on some cases, and sometimes prohibited by the physics laws.

Photos / objects




Fantosmatique
The project of the « design of the invisible » speaks about invisible data which surround us : biological, climatic, electromagnetic or energetic. They are « fantosmatiques ». they are at the same time ghosts (they haunt the space) and sources of fantasies (they generate desire and fears).


Energy solstices
This project is concerned with annual daylight saving times, which are considered as two Energy solstices. They are experienced by means of a story, through objects and through symbolic actions specific to this out-of-the-ordinary space/time, and provide symbolic images of energy.






Cabinet of contemporary curiosities
The Cabinet of curiosities explore our relationship with visible or invisible living being. It proposes a scenography of an exotic travel journal which is made in our home ground. Public can discover microscopic species which are generated by industrialization and urbanization.







Performances




Firmament éphémère
Scenocosme play in live with a specific interface for visual and sound creations : Aleas. Each performance offers a multitude of possibles made by minimalist elements. The musical dialogue gives life to sound creations in suspension.


Escales tactiles : Interactive dance performance
This performance stages the sensitive relationship between a man and a woman. The overall theme is enhanced by the interactive experience of producing and altering the sound and lights via the digital treatment of data coming from the contact between two bodies.
