ARTIST : STEFANE PERRAUD

EXHIBITOR : UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI

EYE TRACKING, SOFTWARE AND REALTIME GRAPHICS : MOTION WAGRAM

WITHIN THE ISOTOPIA PACIFICA EXHIBITION, THIS FIRST VERSION OF AN ICONOCLAST TRAVELING TAKES THE FORM OF A VISION MACHINE.

THE SPECTATOR IS GUIDED BY A SERIES OF SOUNDS AND TEXTS THAT BRING IT PROGRESSIVELY TO THE MAIN VIDEO. THE VIDEO IS THE RESULT OF A CAMERA MOVEMENT IN A VERY LARGE COMPOSITE IMAGE. STEFANE PERRAUD TOOK PICTURES OF HIS NAKED BODY, MEMBER AFTER MEMBER, TO THEN ASSEMBLE THEM IN A FREE WAY. 

THE SPECTATOR GOES THROUGH THE DEVICE, DELETING THE IMAGE, LEAVING EVERY SEEN ZONE A DARK POINT WHILE THE VIDEO IS RUNNING. THE MORE THE BODY IS REVEALED AND THE LESS THE SPECTATOR CAN SEE IT.
