[ISEA2013] Artists Statement: Scenocosme – Lights Contacts

Artists  Statement

French art collective Scenocosme presents Lights Contacts. A large scale, interactive and sensory artwork, it challenges ideas on personal space and the proximity of strangers. Viewers position themselves under a light filled dome. By touching a metallic ball and each other, their bodies are transformed into a human instrument that transmits light and sound. The artwork therefore creates a poetic consideration of intimacy and physical closeness.
