As part of their residency at the SAT, Maotik and Fraction -the duo who created Dromos- present ObE, an immersive and interactive audiovisual installation. Produced in the Satosphere, the installation is an exclusive experience at the very heart of an unpredictable virtual creature.
An illuminated area in the center invites the visitor. Walking through that area -or simply approaching it with the hand- triggers the immersive environment to react via a system of infrared sensors, as if such movements caused "OBE" to behave like an organic entity and suddenly awake.
Produced and presented by the Society for Arts & Technology [SAT] with the support of the Consulat Général de France in Quebec.
