Opening, Monday from 05PM
Keïko will make a live presentation of AYA project on that day, 06PM
Interactive and immersive installation conceived by Keïko Courdy and presented by KI « agency ». This is the first out of 5 interactive modules to be built around the science fiction story of Tao, an experimental child born in zero gravity.
These 5 modules are reconstitutions of his perceptions of the 5 elements (air, water, earth, fire, ether) and their correspondences with the 5 senses (smell, hear, taste, look, touch). The idea is to imagine how one could feel the earth from space. Could one teleport himself mentally by the power of thought and imagination?
The module 2 is made on the theme of AIR and SMELL.
A white sphere in which the audience enters like in a small shelter. Inside, a round inflatable cushion where 10 people can lye down, heads to the center. The sound is coming behind the ears. An odour can be smelt in the module. On the side, an interactive light zone reminds of Star Trek teleportation zones. A real time 3D DVD will also introduce the entire concept of AYA project.
