amour consciente

this piece is created originally for the art show
'amour et conscience' (love and consciousness)
curated by Véronik Menanteau (Paris)

the installation consists of three parts:
five transparent 'curtains' (1*2meters),
a sound file and the web piece itself.

it has been exhibited in the show 'amour et conscience', Atelier Sévigné, Paris, 9/9 - 9/12/99
(look at 'installation' for a sketch and a photo-montage)


the web piece itself also can be seen as an independant work and will get a different meaning presented in such a way


to the web piece

you can experience the piece in different ways.
looking at each 'curtain' seperately (each curtain has some kind of interactivity to explore by mouse-movement or clicking) or by opening two, more or all 'curtains' at once.
what you can 'get' is some kind of control in a uncontrollable environment
a movement linked to a movement linked to a movement (btw. in the real space installation this aspect becomes another meaning through the real walk between the 'curtains' which can be compared with the 'virtual' experience).
