Pulsations

Pulsations

description

Pulsation is a sound installation artwork with a living tree. In contact with the trunk, spectators can hear and feel heartbeat’s sounds and vibrations. With its roots and its high branches, the tree is a kind of link between earth and sky. For Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the wind allows the sap to run in the tree, it is the external heart of the plant. The tree is a symbol of the body too, through its cover and its flesh. It is like a mirror of the body. The spectator hears and feels the sonorous vibrations when he puts his ear or his body against the trunk. The entire tree is in resonance with a human heartbeat. This sound generates sensory, organic and soothing relationships between the tree and the body. The chosen tree will have a sound identity with organic heartbeats and inspired by the body. It will generate meditative, listening, collective and intimate times, by offering a symbolic mirror with our own bodies. Pulsations will be installed discreetly in the landscape, by generating relational and emotional impacts between the body and the tree as with the environment.

Their works came from possible hybridizations between the living world and technology which meeting points incite them to invent sensitive and poetic languages. Thus, through a poetic interpretation of invisible mechanisms, technologies allow them to draw sensory relationships, and to generate unpredictable living interactions. Their hybrid artworks play with their own augmented senses. They live with technology and have reactions which escape deliberately to their control. When they create interactive works, Scenocosme invent sonorous or/and visual languages. They translate the exchanges between living beings and between the body and its environment. They suggest interrelations where invisible becomes perceptible. Materialized, our sensations are augmented. They also explore invisible relationships with our environment: they can feel energetic variations of living beings. They design interactive artworks, in which spectators share extraordinary sensory experiences.
