[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Jean-Marie Dallet – Voyage NO 17

Artist Statement

Each of ninety-six black and white images are associaited with a sound sequence and an eight-word code. The words and sounds discribe the image in a literal or connotative fashion. The images, sounds and texts are simuli, excitations destined to sensitize the spectator-actor to his past. Voyage No. 17 is a “Memory Machine” that continually obliges the spector-actor to explore his own memories in order to relieve the memories which he will then search via a conical memory scheme.

  • Jean-Marie Dallet teaches interactive multimedia at the Ecole superieure d’art et de design at Amiens. He is a researcher at the laboratory of esthetics and technology of interactivity, directed by Jean-Louis Boissier, Universite de Paris 8, Saint-Denis (France). Since 1992, he has participated in the organization of the biennale Artifices in Saint-Denis.
