VIRTUAL REALITY INSTALLATION at ENSBA, ECOLE NATIONALE SUPERIEURE DES BEAUX-ARTS
Keywords: immersion, stereoscopy
The visitor is transformed into a virtual tourist equipped with a camera and projected in three-dimensional representations of a battle-field (constituted by news photographs, mostly from Bosnia war). Each time he pulls on pulling the trigger, which progressively reveals itself as that of an automatic weapon, peals off a part of «the skin of the world» : the visual field encompassed by the view-finder substracted, vanishes out ofthe world. An investigation of our trouble relationship to war representations.
