Test the Digital Washboard at the OWF

September 07Wed, 2011

Derrick Giscloux reveals his latest project, mixing digital art and musical acting

The Digital Washboard is an interactive installation open for public experimentation.

This musical instrument that gives a visual feedback focuses on the proprioceptive scope of body gestures and its impact on the behavior of visitors in relation to their own image, in raising this question : what is the sensory and symbolic nature of your relationship to technology, when confronted with a synthetic image of yourself ?

On a wide screen (2x2m) and a 3D image participants come face to face with their digital double. The Digital Washboard also plays with one of the great symbols of the world obsessed with the screen: that of the modern man sucked in by technology and faced with a choice of being a victim or an actor in the process.
