Matières sensibles (Sensitive matters)
Sound Sculpture on wood / Interactive marquetry & Bio hacking
Scenocosme : Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt

Presentation PDF + Photos




Matières sensibles (Sensitive matters) is a serie of sculptures made of very thin and delicate wood veneer sheets. Here the artists use ash wood. These sheets of wood have distinct sonorous touch zones that follow the natural veins of wood. The researches of Scenocosme have enabled them to develop an artistic and technical process invisible and delicate.

A meticulous and invisible design work gives them the ability to define a musical score spread over different areas of the wood. They have invented this process of Bio hacking that they call «interactive marquetry».

Their wood sculptures produce sounds when the spectators touch them. They use sounds to stimulate haptic and gestural behaviour. Thus, the design of these sculptures looks like instruments which reveal by the touch various kind of sounds. According to sculptures, the relation can be sonorous or at the same time visual and sonorous.

Since many years, Scenocosme’s artists invent interactive works through a singular process of hybridizations between natural elements and technology. They create symbolic and sensorial relationships between the body and the environment natural or social. These wood sculptures offer a sensory and intimate relationship between the wood and the body of the viewer by revealing a sound memory in physical contact with the matter. The electrostatic energy of the human body is the trigger for this artwork. Interactive zones follow exactly the veins of wood.
