Interactive performance / Sound installation (2009)
Performance (1.30.00) : walking with GSM micro in the Montparnasse-Bienvenüe tube station, Paris (Fr)
Installation (1.30.00) : cellular connected to ampli-speakers in a stairwell of IFI building - UPEMLV, Noisy-le-Grand (Fr) /
The whole process of the project is based on body movement, and the tempo of this movement. The body as a flux. A thought on matter, both visible and invisible.
The project confronts two physical spaces. The space of the performance - a subterranean space of intercommunications - the tube station Montparnasse-Bienvenüe in Paris and the space of the sound installation - a transit space - the third floor of a staircase of the UPEMLV building in Noisy-le-Grand.
The performance : "I walk with a regular and repetitive rhythm alonf a many corridors in the tube station Montparnasse-Bienvenüe. I adopt the space throughout the time of the performance. I'm in the middle of a continual bustle of bodies. Various body rhythms appear. My moving body relays its own tempo. Sometimes it adapts to the environment's tempo, sometimes it sets against it."
These variations of rhythm are broadcast in real time in the installation space : two speakers aligned downward forming an invisible line. This sound line gives matter to the body. My body becomes a medium, a transit space.
