Urban Lights contacts


An interactive sound and light installation in the public space with body and skin from public

Urban Lights Contacts is an interactive artwork perceptible by two people and more.
This installation take place in the public space in front of a building.

This sensory installation is tactile, luminous and sonorous. It proposes an original and interactive stagings of the spectators’ bodies. They are transformed into real sonorous human instruments. In a poetic way, we invite the spectator to question the perception of the other.
This artwork is composed of a small interactive shiny ball. A first person is invited to put his hand on the shiny ball. In contact with this object, his body turns sensitive and reactive to other living bodies. If the person remains alone, nothing happens, there is no reaction. He must invite another person to touch him. They must touch each other’s skin. For example, they can shake hands, caress or kiss each other. Each contact generates variable sounds. The various sonorous vibrations change with the proximity of the contacts and of the spectators.
In this artwork, the bodies' energetic clouds (electrostatic energy) are musically felt. We propose a sensory experience with the other person’s body in order to animate what we cannot detect. In this situation, energetic contacts with other human bodies become sonorous. We want to provoke and to overturn degrees of proximity that we use in our relationships with known or unknown people.
