Scenocosme: Gregory Lasserre & Anais met den Ancxt


“Metamorphy” is a visual and sonorous interactive artwork. Spectators are invited to touch and explore the depth of the semi-transparent veil. This symbolic skin has an elasticity which is incorporated within the process of metamorphosis: the veil is deformed when the spectator interacts, and it becomes again rigid when the spectator stops touching it.

The exploration of depths into the veil reveals various meditative universes, through organic, liquid or incandescent substances. “Metamorphy” creates an ambiguity between a real physical space, a virtual space materialized by the reflection of a mirror, and a virtual space generated by the videoprojections of a digital device. In this sensory artwork, real reflections and virtual images get mixed up, give the illusion of a distorted reality.

Like a music score, each interaction zone on the fabric offers sonorous matters (sound effects) when the spectator pushes on it with his hand. Then, when nobody interacts with the veil, it becomes rigid and virtual matters disappear. Only the spectator’s reflection remains.

Scenocosme’s singular artworks use diverse expressions: interactive installations, visual art, digital art, sound art, collective performances etc. Scenocosme mix art and digital technology to find substances of dreams, poetry, sensitivity and delicacy. The artists overturn various technologies in order to create contemporary artworks. Their works came from possible hybridizations between the technology and living world (plants, stones, water, wood, humans…) which meeting points incite them to invent sensitive and poetic languages. The most of their interactive artworks feel various relationships between the body and the environment. They can feel energetic variations of living beings and design interactive stagings in which spectators share extraordinary sensory experiences.

Their artworks are exhibited in numerous museums, contemporary art centers and digital art festivals worldwide.
