Interactive installation with the eyes

“Iris“ is a visual and sonorous interactive artwork with the gaze.

The artwork changes according to the viewer, the motion and intensity of the gaze. An interactive device: a camera eyes tracker, analyses the eyes of the viewer.

The artwork evolves when a visitor stands in front of it and look at it.
The eye is the engine of the work. As long as the gaze is maintained, kaleidoscopic shapes appear and are revealed according to the movement of the iris.
The work reveals the power of the gaze. This is a physical experience.

The viewer who controls the work with his gaze can feel a kind of appropriation and power. Like Gorgo the medusa, he takes full possession of the looking object. He acquires the power to transform it, to explode it, to cancel it.

The sound experience is connected to the visual modification.
The visual and the sound matters, and the effects generated by the software are multiple and give the possibility to create infinite number of combinations. They depend on the intensity and movement of each gaze.

Visual movements are audio-reactive and also gaze-reactive:
A central gaze slows down the movement and makes the visual matter grow.
A look on the periphery twirl it to the left or to the right.
Speed changes with the movement of the eye... until it disappears.

The circles of the visuals could suggest the shape of the iris or some kind of entoptic phenomena.

The shapes in motion are sometimes hallucinatory, between natural elements, humans and other hypnotic hybridizations. Rhythms and sound materials follow these substances.
