Metamorphy
Visual and sonorous interactive artwork

Presentation PDF + Photos

 


Metamorphy is a visual and sonorous interactive artwork. Spectators are invited to touch and explore the depth of the semi-transparent veil. This symbolic skin has an elasticity which is incorporated within the process of metamorphosis : the veil is deformed when the spectator interacts, and it becomes again rigid when the spectator stops touching it.
The exploration of depths into the veil reveals various meditative universes, through organic, liquid or incandescent substances.

Metamorphy creates an ambiguity between a real physical space, a virtual space materialized by the reflection of a mirror, and a virtual space generated by the videoprojections of a digital device. In this sensory artwork, real reflections and virtual images get mixed up, give the illusion of a distorted reality.

Like a music score, each interaction zone on the fabric offers sonorous matters (sound effects) when the spectator pushes on it with his hand. Then, when nobody interacts with the veil, it becomes rigid and virtual matters disappear. The spectator’s reflection only remains.


Métamorphy has received the awards :
- Lumen Prize Silver Award (international award for digital art) - London (UK)
- Interfaces Award / Interactive Art Competition : honorable mention / (CITAR)
Research Center for Science and Technology of the Arts - Porto (Portugal)

Support : Création Artistique Numérique de la Région Rhône-Alpes [SCAN], Ville de St Etienne

 

L’interactivity

Gestures of the veil allow to change scenarios of visual and sound matters in real time. They evolve according to the place and the depth of the contact and are surimposed to the reflect of the spectator in the mirror

A 3D camera is placed behind the veil. It allows to capture and to analyse in real time deformations of the fabric.

3D picture is analysed in real time trough a software. The physical deformation of the veil is mapped in matrix of datas.
Like a music score, each interaction zone on the fabric offers different sound matters.
