“Vibrisses” : a sensory artwork made in feathers
“Vibrisses” is an interactive sound, light and immersive installation artwork. It is composed of a several hanging feathers like a cloud.
The sensation of the feathers on the face is remarkably soft and offers a unique tactile experience. Interactive, feathers react to the breaths as well as the delicate contacts of the spectators by producing evolutionary sounds and luminosities, depending on the quality, and the intensity of the interactions.
Feathers create a unique epidermal relationship with the cloud. In contact with the symbolic fragments of the cloud, the body explores a surface and a cloudy matter. Feathers are its vibrisses which form sensitive nerve endings.
The cloud is here like a micro landscape moving and evolving according to what happens around it and inside it. The interactions with the cloud generate its luminous and sonic consistency. Composed of feathers, it creates a symbolic microclimate of relationships between the body, the sky, the animal. When we goes inside this tactile cloud, this one is sensitive to the movements of air, breaths, movements, touches from the visitors. The body becomes a dynamic air movement, participating in the evolution of the cloud. This immersive cloud generates relationships of our body with the others as with the installation composed of an animal attribute: The feathers which are here a symbol of elevation, lightness, spiritual imagination. They are sensitive fragments for generate light and meditative microclimatic interactions.
