This installation considers the creation of mobile and communicating geometric shapes. Triangular shapes, regularly arranged on a wall or ground surface, form a graphic modulation that reacts to the presence of the public.
As the vertex of each triangle rises, it gives the impression that we are standing before an organic surface, a skin reacting to our presence. The surface vibrates, slackens, stirs, twitches, shudders. Not a puff of air and yet… This skin-material seems capable of emotions.
After a first look, the public imagines the process at work. This surface decodes its environment, translates it into quantifiable terms, and reacts accordingly. Yet the mechanism is more subtle and less automatic than it appears. Restricted to the perimeter of its frame and to its angles, this entity gives the impression of controlling its space as well as it can.
This electrodermal response to the stimuli of our movements appears like the marker of a controlled or impulsive vigilance. Our presence is at once the trigger and the sounder of an emotional state.
