Distances
Interactive installation
Scenocosme : Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt


Presentation PDF + Photos



The interactive artwork "Distances" virtually brings together people who are not able to touch themselves physically.

This artwork was born in April 2020 in response to the Coronavirus crisis that forced us to be isolated and to have physical distances from the others.

In this installation, 2 persons in 2 separate physical spaces are filmed in real time by 2 devices. They are invited to have contact virtually within the same image bringing them together face to face. The head-to-head proposed by the software of the artwork is trying to constantly reduce the proxemic distance between the two persons.
The images of their faces, their hands are attracted and created unique ephemeral meetings with the other.

This artwork is participatory in its creative process for the 2 visitors interacting at the same time.
This staging is constantly renewed for the other groups of observer visitors who are in the exhibition space.
In this creation, we generate reactions and gestures from the spectators in response to virtual contacts.
These contacts give to the viewer strange and real feelings.
He can be amused, embarrassed, annoyed, or he can enjoy the limits of this new kind of contact.


This work is inspired by our precedent artwork "Rencontres imaginaires"



Equipment : 1 videoprojector or TV, 2 HD webcams, 1 computer, 1 piece of black fabric
