Scenocosme: Body and Clouds
by Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt

As media artists, we explore the capacities of technologies in order to draw sensitive relationships through artworks that are based on the enhancement of sensory experiences. Our works spring from hybridization processes between the living world and technology which inspire us to invent new sensitive and poetic languages. Our artworks explore and engage elements of reality which are invisible or we cannot perceive with our normal senses. We use the idea of the cloud as a metaphor of the invisible. The cloud has an unpredictable form, since it is in an indeterminate status of metamorphosis, and its processes escape human perception. Our inter- active works create sound and visual languages, translating the exchanges between living beings, the body and the environment.
