Interactive audio installation.
production Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains
The innovative installation is constructed from an old loom, modified to produce sound and light depending on the intervention of the spectator. A loom has been chosen for its historical and cultural importance for countries such as France and the United Kingdom with their industrial past. The sounds and light produced almost magically by the fluid movement of the wires, evoke not only this industrial past but create an imagery which is in some way connected to the personal history of all.
