“Life is composed by actions and reactions of human beings leaving their traces on the environment, spatial as well as temporal, which successively leaves its mark on these beings. This is the creative chain being offered through this creation.”
This multimedia installation is offering an interactive immersive environment generated in real time from the presence and the movements of the visitors. The participants move through the process of transformation by immersing themselves in the interactive installation. The pictorial and musical multimedia work then totally immerses them. The image, position and movements of the bodies of the participants are recorded in real time and in this way, their physical presence generates and activates a multimedia work that is constantly developing.
Immersed in the visuals and sounds of the installation, the participants are placed in a state of self-questioning. Their images, positions and movements… all transform the universe that is being observed, becoming the material that is used to constitute the different layers of the work.
Participants become aware of “entering the process of creation” of a world of constantly evolving images and sounds, which are revealed by their own presence.
This environment, symbolising the evolution of a world perpetually changing in an approach of permanent questioning, derives from the pictorial process of the artist B2Fays : through many steps of creation and various media, stories or fragments of stories are superimposed and answer each other. Layer by layer, the story is told and simultaneously erased, like a palimpsest.
In B2Fays’ work, images move from one medium to another: painting, sound, video, music, interactive space… in order to question the presence of the visitor in their environment. For her, painting is a powerful act, propagating life even beyond its materiality and temporality.
